Further Description of Sighting: I first noticed this bright light through a shear white curtain around midnight. I had just turned off my bedside light and checked the clock to see what time I was going to sleep. I remember thinking it was just before midnight. Just after I turned out my light I noticed the bright white light through my sheer white curtain. I thought to myself, what is that? Is that the moon, it looks so bright (almost too bright). Because of it’s unusual brightness I pulled aside my curtain. My first thought was that it was too bright and too close (or too large) to be the moon, I thought, it almost looks like the sun. But it midnight. Within seconds of looking at it, it seemed to disappear in a downward and southern direction. I could best liken it too a very, very large shooting star (larger than a close moon). I kept looking out my window and then @ my husband who was asleep and had been for about an hour. I was wondering if I should wake him up to tell him. When I looked out the window probably 10 seconds later there was light in the woods (my neighbors backyard). At first I thought maybe it was back and shinning a light down on the ground. I now think my neighbor possibly saw it also and turned on his strong flood lamps in his backyard. I looked a few seconds later and the light shinning on the ground was gone. The next day I heard their were “sightings” on Cape Cod as well as New York and that NASA had an explanation (rocket launch in Virginia). BUT… the reason I am now writing this is that the sightings I have read about were around 8pm. Mine was most definitely around midnight and prior to that time I had not heard of the sightings earlier in the evening. I am interested now to research if there were any sightings around the time of mine. Thanks for reading!
