Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
An out of the ordinary, fast-moving light moved in a zig zag pattern across the night sky and disappeared in a matter of seconds.

July 2nd, 3rd or 4th, 2010.

From a dock on the Connecticut shore a friend and I (60's, college educated, non-profit professionals) were looking up at the stars about 9 p.m. as the twilight was disappearing and the sky was becoming increasingly dark. We were both looking at about "10-10:30 o’clock" out over Long Island Sound and simultaneously we caught sight of a very fast moving light that blinked and zigzagged and then disappeared. It was probably in our visual field for no more than 3 seconds. It was quite out of the ordinary and we both commented on it at the same time.

While similar in brightness to a high flying airplane or satellite, it didn’t resemble any airplane or satellite I’ve seen before. And neither of us thought it was a shooting star. I’ve never seen an airplane or satellite or shooting star zigzag like this object did. Because it moved in a fast, but measured, geometric pattern it seemed much more like a mechanical object than a natural phenomenon like a comet or shooting star.

We saw it a couple of weeks ago and I am still thinking about it, wondering what it is we saw.
