UFO report. Columbia County, Town of Gallatin NY .

Star like object drops behind cloud.

My wife and I moved outside at 8:45 pm to our porch to relax and look at the landscape (facing east). While looking at the sky my wife said what a pretty cloud, and I said it was. Just above the cloud was what appeared to be a star, as we looked at the cloud the star quickly moved down into the cloud. My wife and I sat watching there were no other stars in the sky due to cloud cover. I used the deck post as a reference to see if the cloud was moving, it was not but, the object did. We are familiar with satellite's and meteors and this was neither.

The one thing is that stars don't jump into a cloud. The UFO was in the eastern sky at about 45 degrees off the tree line and promptly dropped down at a slight angle towards the ground into the cloud.

After thinking about it the cloud would have had to jump straight up in a split second but the cloud was stationary. We both agree it was not a plane or star but a UFO.
