The caller went outside to walk his dog and look at the comet.

He looked to the east, and he noticed movement in the night sky. Upon looking closely at the object, he noticed that it was 7-9 lights (est.), oriented in a "boomerang" shape. The lights were orange in color, and they were very faint, fainter than typical stars, for example.

The object moved very fast from the eastern sky to the northwest sky, traversing approximately 120-130 degrees (est.) of arc in approximately 5 seconds. No sound was apparent.

The caller does not have internet access.
