Location: Rochester, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:20 - 30 seconds
Bright, fast moving blue light in Eastern sky.

My wife and I were driving East at approximately 9:50 to 9:55pm on the evening of July 14th, 2010. At this time a bright, blue toned light caught our eyes, in the Eastern sky moving from North to South. The object was about 10-15 degrees above the eastern horizon.

The object was moving very fast, much faster than a conventional craft and traversed the eastern horizon in about 20 to 30 seconds max. It was a solid bright light, no blinking lights, no trail, seemed to move a bit erratically on path.

I thought at first it could be the ISS, or another prominent satellite but I checked fly overs, times, and directions of fly overs and none of them added up to our sighting. The only visble fly over at that time and date for my area would be the Genesis II, which would have been to our backs, not ahead of us in the Eastern sky.
