Shape: Diamond
Duration:2 minutes
Orange diamond "kite" like object spotted over NJ.

I was playing in the yard when my son told me to look up in the sky. He said that there was a shooting star falling out of the sky. I took a look up in the south east direction from my Florham Park yard.

I initially saw what looked like plane, as it was the most logical thought. Note that I do live near Morristown Airport, so I just assumed it was a low flying plane. But it wasn’t flying like a plane. It was moving a slower and there was a change of speeds. It seemed to be flying at a steady pace at first, but then slowed down and with that change of pace was a slight change in direction. Seemed odd to me. This is when I thought it was more than a plane.

After it flew for what seemed like a minute, I had a hard time making it out and seemed to have disappeared from my view. In regards to the object itself, I would say it was just 1 color. It was an orange color of lights. It appeared to be diamond shaped. I even said to myself that it looks like a kite with lights around it.

In what might be a coincidence, after the object went out of view, there was a plane that seemed to be flying in that same direction.

My thought on that was it saw what I saw and was going to take a closer look.
