UFO over Manhattan Caught on Tape
FILE - In this April 28, 2012, file photo, Reese Witherspoon arrives at the White House Correspondents Association dinner in Washington. It will be Sarah Jessica Parker's house, but President Barack Obama's show. You could call it "Checks and the City." Needing to boost his donor base and campaign cash, Obama is banking on elite entertainers for help so often they have essentially become a cast of characters in his campaign. He is using his Hollywood access and raffling it off as a prize to others, tapping into a nation that revels in celebrity even in hard economic times. From Tinseltown to Broadway, Obama has surrounded himself with blockbuster names lately: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Witherspoon, Spike Lee, Will Smith, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Cher and many others who make more in one year that most people do in a lifetime.

Dozens of people were stopped in the middle of the sidewalks of the Chelsea neighborhood on Manhattan's West Side, looking up in the sky.
One speculated it was a balloon, another joked that it was Superman or Superwoman, and yet another wondered whether whatever it was was simply "looking for the mother ship!"
The city says its 311 help line got dozens of calls about the object.
And city officials haven't provided any answers about what it might have been - though they're said to be leaning toward the balloon camp.
