Shape: Light
Duration:10 secs
Cross shaped orange & green lights moving at incredible speed.

I am an amatuer astronomer. I know what planes, satellites, & meterorites look like. This was a formation of lights roughly in the shape of a cross. The cross had 4 orange shaded lights equidisant from each other & had a green light moving from left to right and back again on top of cross. This object was moving from the east to the west at the zenith with incredible speed.I saw it with my eyes and had my binoculars in hand, as I looked with the binoculars I could not make out any distinguisable surface details. The lights were not blinking but were steady. This was no plane or satellite. The airport is only 10 miles away but is not up and running because of the events this week.I don't know what it was!
