My wife and i were driving sw from state route 690s in syracuse onto state route 5 (west bound) when we observed an object in the sky at approximately 5:44pm est. the object looked like it was on fire and falling, and as we followed the object, we noticed it was stationary in the sky. other airplanes were flying near the same airspace and were noticeably moving. this object, upon closer examination from different viewpoints, seemed to have two large tails that came off the main body. it appeared to be highly reflective. from the vantage point of our observation, as we traveled towards skaneateles, ny, it would appear that it was hovering somewhere over the finger lakes region (cayuga, seneca lakes?). it was much larger than any other identifiable airplanes in the sky, approximately 3-5 times the size to the visible eye. we tracked the object, unmoving in the sky, from 690s in syracuse until rt. 321 in skaneateles for about 20 minutes where we lost sight of it. we travelled sw of skaneateles towards owasco lake, but the object had either disappeared or gone below the skyline that we could observe. we were able to take several pictures and a video, although they don't truly present the significance of the color and reflective nature of the object.
