Sighting Report
Occurred : 11/16/1996 23:14
Reported: 11/17/1996 10:27
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Greenwich, CT
Duration:7 sec.
Two men driving from Greenwich, CT, to New York City suddenly witness a yellow-orange ball of light streak across the cloudless sky. The impression of the caller was that the object had lights on it, and it was flying horizontally, parallel to the horizon, and not very high above the horizontal plane.

Object was VERY fast, vastly faster than a fighter jet would fly. Also, object was VERY bright. The object left a distinct trail behind it, which dissipated rather quickly.

Viewer felt the object almost certainly was not a meteorite. It maintained the same shape, same brightness throughout the sighting.

At first, he thought the object was a crashing aircraft.

No report on the radio stations.

He has never made a UFO report before.
