Location: Rochester, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 secs
I observed a very bright sphere travelling from 60 deg. to 20 deg. East of Rochester, NY. It was a bright white sphere, moving very fast.

The object was very bright, more so than an airplane, it did not have any red or green lights. The object was lit unlike a meteor, it was a steady white light, it did not leave any trails...It's size was approx. 1/2 of a standard pencil eraser, held at arms length, although the object was spherical. The speed of the object was increadible, it moved from 60 deg. above the horizon, to behind some trees at approx 15 deg. above the horizon in 3 seconds.
