Duration: 3 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: New York City, NY, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Lights on object

Incredible speed and amount of light projected from the object was astounding.

From my 6 story building on my rooftop i was looking west towards the sunset. I spotted what i thought to be a shooting star but came to an abrupt halt. A bright light flying at incredibly high speed and smooth maneuvers, ascending and descending and banking. The light would dim and brighten. It looked to be over the Hudson River at approximately 23rd street. The sun was setting although the sky was still bright and very pink.

Within flight paths of many planes and helicopters this object had only one constant light. No flashing or colored lights. It looked to be under 2k altitude.
