Posted: 8/27/2009
Location: New York City (Queens), NY
Shape: Oval
Duration:6 seconds
Oval shaped object moves past the sky at high speed creating no noise

Around 1:30- 2:30 AM, My brother and I was lying on cement in our backyard watching the meteor shower. There were very few meteors that we saw, but still enough dazzle us.

When sitting, I saw an oblate circle/oval shaped object fly by. I looked at it, and I was about to neglect the continuation of looking at it since I thought it was a bird or airplane or something. Then, I realized it was moving at incredilble speed. About five times faster than a normal plane would make at that elevation. It was an orangish color (around the color of the clouds) with no lights or sound. It moved very fast and smooth and my brother and I had to stand up to see it as it was about to go past our field of vision.

We watched it disappear into the clouds. It headed around the direction of South. It moved in a straight path.
