Location: Sherman, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:30-60 sec
Me: I think I saw a streak or some sort of flashing that lasted for an unimaganably small amount of time (I saw this part out of the corner of my eye as my friend pointed).it stopped, and was a yellow white light moving slowly downward and away, dropping down in 2-3 steps. It was moving to the east as this happened. The mostion was extremly smooth, and it wwas perfectly silent. At first I thught It was a firework od the sort that shoots in the air and comes down on a parachute, but it dropped in several short, quick bursts, unlike the glide of a parachute. Its possible that someone was flying a kite with a light abd propeller attached, but it looked to be at least the altitude of a short range private aircraft, and there wasnt any wind on the ground and it moved too fast. I dont think this is outside the scope of an elaborate hoax, but if it was a hoax it was a pretty fucking good one (it also must have been moving away if it was as high as it looked because it disapeared behind the treeline. my friend:I was looking over the shoulder of my freind and I happen to see a star like object yet much brighter.I slowly watched this object move in the northeast to the east. As i watched I lost site of it over the trees.
