Location: Malden Bridge, NY
Shape: Disk
Duration:30 minutes
A shallow disc of light in cloudy light 45 degrees above horizon, 8:45PM, Columbia County, New York.

We were standing on the deck of our house on a hill, with an unobscured view of the western sky. We observed what appeared to be a shallow disk emanating light from within, and surrounded by a cloud of light, through binoculars. This object was approxamately 45 degrees off the horizon in the west-southwestern sky. It remained stationary for several minutes and then moved in a hortherly direction, appearing to recede as it moved. Without binoculars it appeared to be a cloud of light without specific shape.
