Observer
NameBob L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksFrom my perspective, it appeared to be going north, just above the Hudson River, with a slightly downward trajectory. I recall it being lower than the buildings on the NY side of the river. Very long silver sparkling tail. I lost view of it as a building blocked my view. I expected to see it reappear on the other side of the building but it did not. I walked to the river and spoke to other witnesses who told me they saw what I saw, but it just disappeared , didn’t drop into the river, didn’t go up or down, just disappeared. No sound at all
