Reported: 8/16/2016 2:04:19 PM 14:04
Posted: 8/16/2016
Location: New York City (Manhattan), NY
Shape: Unknown
Duration:15-20 minutes
I was on the roof of my apartment building, eating a bag a potato chips, at around 2:45 am this morning. I was just absent-mindedly looking up, and after a couple of minutes, at around 2:47 am., I saw a huge streak of golden yellowish light catch my peripheral vision from the east side of Manhattan.

I didn't think much of it, but 2 minutes later, I saw the same golden streak of light zoom by towards what looked like downtown, going south of central park.

I was absolutely shocked and almost panicked.

A couple of minutes later mayber 3 to 5 minutes later, i saw the streak of light again moving incredibly fast towards the west side of Manhattan, maybe towards Jersey. That was the last time I saw the golden streak of light.
