Location: Central Square, NY
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15-20 seconds
Triangular metallic object emitting trail of orange, travelling extremely fast

I was drivingdown I-81S towards Syracuse. About 1/2 mile past Central Square, I saw a triangular object going at a downwards angle from west to east. When the sunlight hit it, it reflected the sunlight. It was extremely bright. Behind it was a cone of some sort coming to a point of orange. I don't know whether it was fire, or vapor? I knew the object was going extremely fast, for it travelled the length of my windshield in no time at all. Also, it was below the clouds(ceiling). I had enough time to hold up my hand, and determine it was the size of my thumbnail when my arm was fully extended, and the "vapor" behind it was approximately 4-6 inches across my windshield. It then disappeared behind the trees?
