In Wes Windsor NJ, a glowing, undulating roughly V-shaped line of light moved across the sky just under the Orion Constellation.

We were taking a walk in our neighborhood and I was looking at the sky near and below the Orion constellation when I saw a diaphanous line of light in a roughly v-shaped pattern around 10 degrees above the horizon - roughly East-Southeast. The soft glow, about a medium magintude star in strength, defined a line that wavered and undulated in the manner of a flock of sparrows, but generally described a "V" shape that - if I remember correctly, pointed southward. There was enough glow from the ground that I could not distinguish whether there was a solid object defined by the line of light, or if it was just a glowing line in the sky. The line of light moved from left to right - southward - for a few seconds asI called my wife's attention to it. It continued to move and she saw it as well for another 10 or so seconds (estimated) before it either faded from view or came so close to the ground glow and horizon that I could not see it anymore. My wife described what I had seen closely enough I knew that it was not a vision problem on my part. No sound was associated with the event.
