Location: Wantage, NJ
Shape: Other
Duration:30 minutes
Bright light moving extremely low and slow with periodic bright shards of colored lights beaming down periodically.

The object was very bright and moved incredibly slow. The distance it traveled would normally take a plane we estimate under 10 minutes to travel the space and distance this light traveled. It was bright, the shape unclear with periodic shards of red and what looked light possibly green lights shooting down from the base of it. It also has radiating white lights in beams periodically as well. They shot out like shards of a star. The shards that dropped below the light were approximately 5 times the length of the light. we observed it at 10:30pm when we walked our dogs. It was so obvious after we walked the dogs we videoed and shot pic pm my iphone of the light, It was too far to see anything other than a light. We watched it for 30 minutes until we finally looked away and it was gone.

It was not a plane,. We are near the flight path for Stewart airport Middle town NY and Sussex airport Sussex NJ and I am very familiar with all types of planes traveling through our areas. In addition it was not a helicopter because we can always hear them even at great distances because we are high On a open hill.

I do not know what we saw, however as can say I have not seen anything Ike this in the past 10 years I have lived here. My husband did experience a bight light in the middle of the night many years ago. So bright it woke him and scared him.

I have not seen anything like this before.
