This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2709-2013
Observer
NameJose F
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI've never seen a falling object in NYC; most of my sightings were when I lived in the Caribbean. But this seemed high in the sky over the vicinity of Laguardia Airport in Queens, NY - at least I think so because I was watching planes rising into the night sky from that direction, although the object was too high in the sky to affect air travel (from my perspective).
