I want to keep my promise to our listeners and friends on ATS Live!
This will be my second reported sighting (though I have had others) and I will not repeat the mistake of trying to draw little pictures to describe the event (the laughter at my lack of artistic skill still rings in my head)...
As I stood facing east in my backyard at roughly 2 to 3 minutes before 10 PM (New York time) My daughter and I watch a curiously bright light that appeared to be approaching (generally speaking) our vicinity. It was a clear night, no visible cloud cover and no aircraft activity at the time.
The brilliant but small light appeared at roughly 30 degrees from the horizon, maybe a bit higher, and moved in a roughly south easterly direction. No aircraft noise was evident or heard, no blinking lights were visible. My daughter and I - no strangers to sky watching - waited to see how long it would be until we could detect the flashing navigation lights or at least could tell that the "aircraft" was changing direction since we expected the brightness to be "headlights," so to speak, that might happen to shining in our direction.
