Mr Davenport - I work nights on my way home as usual last night at 0338 hrs I observed a strange (cobalt) blue very bright light streak across the night sky very quickly. I was traveling East to West on Forest Hill Rd between Holden Blvd & Jasper St. Staten Island NY 10314 area.

Out of the driver's left side window, the light caught my eye, as it streaked past my vehicle and I watched it either disappear or burn out while looking through the front windshield, it was also traveling East to West Just over the tree tops. I was completely sober lol, as I said just driving home from work.

It reminded me of a "shooting star" I've seen many meteor showers in August near Lake George growing up. But this was different it was much closer to the ground fire works height. But I've never seen this color in fire works.

The tip of it appeared very dark black the body was an extremely bright cobalt blue with a long bright white tail that widened and sprayed out as it streaked across the sky. No one else was driving on the road at this time. The night sky was very overcast I could not see any other lights no stars, no moon either. It happened so fast there was not enough time to take a picture with my phone.

I was listening to "Coast to Coast" on the radio and my window was rolled up, so I never heard a thing.

I'm leaning more towards something celestial not ET, but I've never seen those vivid bright colors in the sky before. I would love to know what I saw. I have made a report like this in my life.
