Posted: 11/21/1998
Location: Penfield, NY
Shape: Circle
Duration: minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A small bright object accross the sky and disappeared. No glamorous close up sighting, but extremely high for an airplane, much, much to fast, no flashing or red lights. Deffinately not a shooting star. We know what these look like. It was in the Eastern horizon heading North to South. Could add better description, but just wondered if we are the only ones to report this. Seriously can not be convinced this was an airplane.

At around 22:40 (EST) on 06/27/98 in the Eastern horizon, heading North to South I observed a circular lighted object (white) that caught my attention in the night sky that appeared to be at a height that is extremely high for an airplane, and at a speed much too fast, no red or flashing lights could be seen as you usually see with airplanes. After it traveled what seemed a great distance in a short time it disappeared. Deffinately not a shooting star which seems to burn brighter and lasts maybe a second. Witnesses: I am 38, wife 34, son 10, and daughter 9. I am still sort of a skeptic about UFO's in the sence of from other planets, so could there be a logical explanation for what we saw. It was a clear night, is it possible to see a satalite that we have orbiting around the earth, or don't these light up like what we witnessed? Has there been any other sightings at around this time? Is it possible to be contacted with a response via E-Mail, such as your professional opinion on what we saw.
