Location: Lockport, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright, white light in Buffalo sky.

I was outside my house on the patio having a cigarette and noticed that there was no moon in the sky so I could see many more stars in the night sky than usual.

While observing the stars, I noticed a bright light in the SW part of the sky moving. I first thought it was a typical airplane or helicopter, but there weren't any red/green lights or any sound.

Then I thought it may be a meteor, but it was moving way to slow. While it was travelling roughly the same speed as a typical aircraft, I knew that it couldn't be one. (Growing up in the area near the Buffalo/Niagara airport, I am very aware of all the aircraft coming in and out of the airspace in the area)

This was no typical aircraft. The light moved from the WSW to ENE night sky for about 3 mins before it simply vanished.

Very strange.
