RemarksWhile walking here in upstate New York at dusk (8:45 pm August 3rd 2021) we saw something shoot across the sky. This object was traveling at a great velocity (would guesstimate at least a few thousand mph) and had small red flames shooting from the back, and these flames were only a couple times the length of the form, and not long and trailing. This object traveled from southeast to northwest. It only took about 4 seconds then it seemed to just disappear while in our view. Just like a light turning off. There was no sound and no visible streak that it made, and no other fragments. It was also flying parallel to the ground, not flying toward the ground. It just quietly disappeared halfway across the sky literally into the sunset.
