Location: New York City (Brooklyn), NY
Shape: Circle
Duration:10 seconds
I t was 3:18 pm on Valentines day that I have witnessed an object in the sky. I am in Brooklyn.

I realize that this is Valentines Day, and the object may be passed off as a silver valentine balloon, however it seemed to be very high in the sky. It was travelling left to right with out any movement caused by wind. I noticed it for 10 seconds.

A balloon I would think would be tossed a great deal but this object seemed to be in control of it self.

It looked like a silver circle.

Shortly afterwards, I would say about 30 seconds I saw an aircraft in the sky close to the area with smoke trails and the orb was not to be found.

I had left for 20 seconds to grab my binoculars to get a better look, because my telescope would be too time consuming. I would have to line up the spotter scope first, then look through the lens and i know for a fact that I would lose the orientation of the orb.

Thank you.
