This report has been linked to the following event: Event 6962-2020
Observer
NameSandra J
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy dogs were unusually barking with no focus and I decided to look up and saw what I initially thought was a plane and I almost dismissed it, but something was off about the way the light reflected off it, and it was too high to land at JFK and the direction wasn't typical of other planes. I looked up again and my 2nd impression was that of a shuttle-shaped object, but then I saw a projection on the right side too short to be a regular wing. I then saw that same side projection flip to the left side. A moment later a burst of a black circle on its left which quickly disappeared when the compact super white-as-the-sun globe appeared for a few seconds and all disappeared but the blue sky. It was very high, but If there were any fragments, I did not see any flickering debris, just total obliteration. It was pretty amazing, just that the supposedly flying rock looked more like an engineered aircraft.
