Shape: Sphere | Duration: 10 seconds

Reflective Silver/Orange sphere over BrooklynYesterday at around 5:30 pm I looked up from my laptop and noticed through my east facing window what I initially thought was a plane in the distance(there are planes that fly past my building constantly). This was definitely not a plane and when I really looked I saw that it was a reflective spherical object moving horizontally south to north. I was reflective was glowing orange,but like it was silver and reflecting the sunset to the west. After I watched it for a few seconds it disappeared- not suddenly, but almost as if it had gone into clouds, like it was fading out. The only thing was there were no clouds, it was a completely clear sky. I thought maybe it was a balloon that popped, but it didn't automatically disappear. It was also close or large enough that I think the deflated balloon falling would have been visible. This was over buildings in Brooklyn or the Brooklyn/Queens border. I am not sure how long it was visible out my window, as when I looked! up I only observed it for 7-10 seconds before it vanished.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
