Streak of light over whitehall NY pauses then vanishes is a flash of light lasted just seconds suprised on lookers can't justifyAt about 9:45PM last night (8/24/16), my family and I were driving home to Glens Falls, NY, on our way back from vacation in Maine. We were driving towards Whitehall, NY, at the time we saw it we were just outside Whitehall. I'd say 5 miles or less. So, I was just driving along, when at the above stated time out of my left side view looking out the windshield of my car I saw a streak of light. That at first glance looked like a shooting star. It didn't take me long to realize that that was not what I was looking at. There was something about the way it was moving that made me look again a little deeper. Now for context this whole thing lasted just seconds but, you know when you spot something. Out of the corner of your eye that actually inside you peripheral far enough were you get a good enough look at it. To the point that I'm driving forward focused on the road but can see the light moving in to my course of vision. that's what happened. So, I saw this light and it registers after just a second this is peculiar. So now is when I shift my view or focus out that side of the windshield to actually see this light that was acting funny.. so, this light moves into view, the first thing that didn't jive was the speed at which it was moving. Much too slow to be a shooting star. Then, I noticed the streak of light was thicker than it would be if it were a shooting star. Then, of course, i saw a shape in front of the streak. This is the hardest thing to describe I can't remember a shape per se as much as the color which was the same bright, white light as the streak but separate from it. (if I had to say a shape it would be oval or tear drop shaped) so now, the streak came in to view streaked for a few seconds as if slowing down cause then it paused (or stopped dead) for a moment. This is when I new we had just seen something extraordinary. The following thing that happened was a flash of light and it vanished. It shot off in some direction so fast I couldn't even see it. and that's when I turned ! to my wi fe and said what the hell was that!? Did you see that? She said she saw it and that it was strange but she is a skeptic by nature, so she just blew it off. And I can't stop thinking about it, please tell me someone else saw this too?
