Observer
NameCaleb D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving east on a clear sunny day on ny Route 59 when I noticed a bright light moving quickly from north to south in the sky. I was only able to observe it for perhaps 2 seconds before my view was blocked by structures (NYS Thruway overpass, buildings). There was no way I could have filmed it or taken a picture. The fast moving light may have bifurcated before I lost sight of it.
