Shape: Light
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright Light over Schenectady.

On Saturday, August 2nd, at approximately 9:53 PM I saw what appeared to be a VERY bright light moving across the sky. It was a bright, white light that was moving in a east/southeast direction. About 2/3rds of the way across the sky, it STOPPED, did what I would describe as a "reverse S ", then it stopped again. It remained in one spot for about 15 seconds, becoming dimmer and dimmer. When it was almost totally dim... It "winked" in a southerly direction. When I say "winked", it looked like a tiny streak for a split second.Total elapsed time was about 30 seconds.
