Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Bright, fast, white light

Exited rear of workplace and looked up to see a large, white, very bright light traveling fairly low and very fast. Cloud ceiling was 12,000 ft this evening and no stars visible. Object made no sound that I could hear. After traveling in a straight line from NE to SW it went at a sharp downward angle and disappeared from view. My first thought was helicopter, but if it were, it would have crashed into the ground. And it was moving way too fast to be the State Police helicopter that is familiar to our area. Watched meteor shower for several hours just two nights prior to this, and this was no meteor. Drone, plane, helicopter? I don't know, but I've never seen anything like it.
