Location: Babylon, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1minute
At 10:30 p.m., I saw in the sky what looked like an airplane on fire heading south towards the Great South Bay in New York.

At approximately 10:30 p.m. ET, on the South Shore of Long Island in Suffolk County, NY, my husband abruptly said, "What is that?  What is that?"

We ran to the window and saw an unusual flying object.  

At around 3 or 5 thousand feet, a flying object was heading southbound.  It had a brilliant, twinkling, deep orange light.  It appeared to be about the same size as an airplane.  It actually looked like a commercial airplane on fire.

We opened the porch door to listen for any sound emanating from the object.  There was none.

It was in our view for about 1 minute.  Then it disappeared.
