Strange light in the sky

I was standing on my deck shortly after dusk and looking to the east and saw a bright round light travelling towards the southeast towards the ocean on eastern Long Island. I have seen thousands of planes, satellites and shooting stars over the decades but this was different.

It was a bright white light, with no running lights such as red/green etc. It was brighter than a plane lights, but what was unusual was it was a light that was whiter than white bordering a chrome color. It was only going a hundred MPH or so, and only a few thousand feet up.

My opinion was the object was a glowing light, not an intense light attached to the object. The object was not coming towards me so I can rule out landing lights, which are never this white anyway.

Watched for two minutes until object dissappeared behind some trees. No sound, fading or unusual movements observed.

Editor Note: The object was observed on Sunday, July 11, 2010, Not July 10th. I am resending this report to you with corrected date.
