Location: Deer Park, NY
|Moving star over eastern New York
It was a very clear night with a decent view of the stars. I was sitting outside just staring up and noticed what appeared to be a satellite moving across the sky. The object looked like a star moving across the sky. I have seen other satellites moving across the sky at consistent speeds and directions. I watched the object and it seem to move. I stared more intently as the object changed directions and accelerated. It was a relatively quiet night and there was no sound. I am an aviation professional and am positive it was not an aircraft. The change of direction and the speed of the acceleration was unlike any aircraft I am familiar with. The object also appeared exactly like a satellite or moving star.
