Location: Rochester, NY
|I was looking south over south town plaza watching the jets making clouds way up by the cirrus when i noticed about a quarter mile out in front of me an object that was slowly moving away to the ssw .
What i saw was a pure white bubbulous object with brilliant tiny red twinkling lights in a small area on the underside. this was viewed through 10x42 binoculars. i need a witness. I jumped in my truck and drove 200ft to a garage handed the binoculars over and pointed it out as we proceeded to view it as it drifted up at about a thirty five degree angle. when i first looked at it i thought it was about fifteen, 10 foot weather balloons tied together with twelve volt blinking lights on it but then i relized it was moving off towards the ssw and the wind was blowing due east.there was also an airplane that passed close behind it from airport.
i have been watching the skies since i was eight (1969) and i have never seen any thing until now. ex air force f-15 tech comm/nav
