Shape: Other
Duration:20 minutes
Two bright clouds fall from sky over Newburgh,NY.

At first sight there was a glowing, bright vertical rectangle that shimmered as it slowly spread out and down from 40 degrees above the Catskills horizon. It was so bright and strange that my wife and I got out of bed and went to the sunroom for better view. After a few minutes I got my binoculars and continued to watch the first shape glow and writhe but not moving across the sky like cloud.

At about 6 minutes we watched a slowly falling trail of sparks, like slow motion meteor, coming from above and just to the left of the first shape. As the trail passed the altitude of the first shape it spread into a glowing cloud of shimmering particles. The two shapes hung in the atmosphere slowly dissipating and growing dimmer until I stopped watching at about 20 minutes.
