I was 16 when I had this sighting and I am not 51. At that time I didn't know how to report a sighting. I was at a baseball park and saw the object and followed it over to the park. It was very high up in the sky. The object was like a white light. It shot out straight across the sky and then shot straight up and disappeared.
