Duration:2 seconds
it was a quick beam of silvery light tjatshot across the sky.

I was smoking a cigarette on my balcony and I looked up at the sky as I usually do. Newark airport is in the distance and a lot of planes fly by.

Plainly said.. a silvery/ white light shot across the sky and disappeared. I'm not sure its altitude, but it sure was as low as the planes!!! Closest point of interest would be the staten island expressway. It was right overhead. My balcony faces jersey and the airport.

I assumed comet or cool shooting star...this was way too low to be either or! All I know is, I'm gonna have a lil trouble sleeping.
