Location: East Islip, NY
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Incredibly fast moving bright light in an oscilloscope-like path

I was merging onto Sunrise Hwy going eastbound when I looked up in the sky and immediately a bright white/bluish light that was moving extremely fast caught my eye.

I alerted my girlfriend and was able to get her to look quick before it went away; she was able to catch it as it went fast across the sky and dissapeared.

It wasn't moving straight across the sky but it went up and down 3 or 4 times in an oscilloscope-like path before taking off in a straight line.

The speed was incredible. The object did not slow down as it changed from downward to upward motion.
