Location: Buffalo, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:2 seconds
Fast moving light curves in sky

Outside of a theater, 2 observers witnessed what appeared to be a "shooting star" streak across the Eastern part of the sky, headed in the northeast direction. It was seen in peripheral vision at first, and upon looking up, a solitary white/yellow orb of light quickly raced across the sky, curved right, then left, then right again, in an "S" form, before disappearing. The local airport was nearby, but the object was moving much too quickly to be any kind of commercial aircraft (and had been moving away from the airfield). If it had been military or an otherwise highly-technical aircraft, there was no sonicboom, nor could an aircraft turn so sharply. One of the observers was a former US Air Force personnel.
