Duration:3 seconds
Sighting during the blood moon.

My friend/ boss and I were standing outside watching the eclipse and looking at the stars starting around 4:30 am on highway 190 going toward Albany.

Around 4:43 am we saw a shooting star or two which isn't uncommon, but a few minutes later we both looked up when we saw a light that had appeared out of nowhere and was just hovering there for about a second, then lit up brightly and took off north much like something out of Star Wars.

We have seen a lot of shooting stars in our day, but this actually startled us because it certainly was not even close to a comet coming into orbit.
