Telephoned Report:

Pilot and passenger witness light to the northeast of their aircraft, which they could not identify.

Telephoned Report: A young pilot, enroute to Bangor, reported that he and his passenger witnessed a peculiar light directly ahead of their aircraft, which they could not identify. He emphasized that the light was almost certainly not the landing light on another approaching aircraft, and that he could not see red or green navigation lights on the object.

When asked whether he had contacted Approach Control, to have them attempt to identify the object, he said that he had not.

The light suddenly just disappeared, as both witnesses were staring at it from their cockpit.
