|Sphere heads north, turns, and then goes up!
My son and I were leaving to get in our car at a downtown business, when all of the sudden my son asked if a bright object was Mars. I said no, because Mars was in the southern sky, and this light was towards the north. We watched the object about 70 degrees above the horizon go in a straight line for north. Then, it made a curve towards the North-east (at 45 degrees above the horizon) , faded out like it was going higher into the atmosphere. This was not a satelite since it started at a dead stop. It was not a plane, since it had no wing blinking lights, and the object was too far up for that. The object was a pure white, no yellow. It was a sphere and only dimmed in intensity as it curved and head to higher altitudes until it was a tiny point, and kept going until other buildings obscured the view. This sight was only 3 miles form Johnson City where another report was recently made. Is the southern tier of NY becoming UFO central?
((NUFORC Note: The International Space Station flew over the area in question, but at 19:25 hrs. on this date, and it would have been in the west and the south. PD))
