Location: Yonkers, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
Moving light with no sound or blinking/pulsating.

I was home and decided to look out my living room window like usual, and look at the night sky like i do every night. I looked out the window and glanced at the night sky before i started looking at stars and i saw a few stars and a very bright one, i glance at the other side of the sky then look back to the other side to realize the bright star moved from its position a bit so i started looking at it and i saw it was moving. I called my mom over to see it and she saw it as well. What i thought the object was a plane or a helicopter. The object was as bright as a bright star but a little brighter. I noticed it didnt have red/green lights or blinking lights like aircraft should have. I know it wasnt an airplane because im very very interested in airplanes and kknow alot about them of how they look during the day and night and how they sound. The object was moving in a straight direction (Moving from West to East). I opened the window to hear nothing coming from it. Then i said in my head " UFO? Alien life? Government Test?". What i felt was anxiousness to know what it was that was just a moving light with no sound. What i did during the sighting was just stand at the window with my mom and watch it till i couldnt see it anymore because of my buildings shape. so the building got in my way to view it longer. After the sighting i went online to search if anyone else saw this before or even when i saw it. A tweet on twitter said "there was a strange light in the sky tonight, not a star but not a helicopter, had no sound just slow moving ball of fire." Angle of elevation: 75-80 degrees above me Elevatio: About 400-500
