Shape: Cigar
Duration:unknown
09/02/2011 at 11:00 PM. Vertical, white, smoky cigar shape. White light a tboth ends. Lights did not flash. I saw it while driving.

I left work at 11:00PM. I was driving E. on 86th. St. I saw a white, smoky, vertical object in the Eastern sky. Bright white circular light at bottom, small white light at top-bottom light went out, came back on twice, did not flash repeatedly. Object remained stationary.

It reminded me of a comet with a short,smoky tail...not a long one.

I watched it as I drove 8-9 minutes...no visible movement up-down-right-left-nearer-further.

If you hold your left hand on the steering wheel and raise your finger....the object was about as long as your fingernail...at whatever distance it was away.

I did not see any other object. Several stars were visible in the surrounding sky.

I arrived at home. I could no longer see the object for the trees.
