Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Bright light accelerates over Brooklyn New York.

On the morning of February 20th, 2009 approximately 5:10am as I walked east on Seeley street in Brooklyn, New York I look up towards the east and noticed Venus in the sky.

Just below Venus and to the left I noticed another bright light which I thought was a star. As I walked I looked at it and noticed it was moving east away from me at a hight rate of speed. I stopped to get a perspective of the object moving and it was moving fast. What caught my eye was that it was bright and seemed to be at a high altitude and it did not have any distinctive lights as aircraft would. Their were no navigation lights, or anti-collision light, it was just a bright white ball of light.

I just watched it accelerate away, it took no longer then 2 minutes for it to disappear from my sight.
