FLASH of light along the water!

Ok, there have been MANY reports for sightings of UFO's in the Hudson Bay area of NY/NJ. I never really gave them much credence figuring there are too many people to lend witness to such sightings, UFO's would be a little more inconspicuous I would imagine. Tonight I saw something though.

We were coming back from the Macy's fireworks and passing the Statue of Liberty or a little past that vacinity. I was looking out towards the east side, where it was pretty dark and saw a blurring accelerating from the water towards the sky at a 15-20 degree angle. It went by so fast that it left a light trail blur. So fast that it went by in under a second. And there was no point of destination that you could site and say, "There it goes, or is, or etc." It wasn't the reflection of another boat, nor my eyes playing tricks on me, nor a reflection on the water as I was looking out that side of the ship for several minutes just enjoying the ride. I looked around the top deck and no one else seemed to be witness to it. I am excited by it as it was unique, but equally disappointed as the short duration puts it in the catagory of metaphysical, esoteric or mind affected experience and therefore somewhat invalidates the experience for me, even though I witnessed it. I look forward to the day when something is CLEARLY captured on film and released to the public.
