Witness Direction: Overhead

Description: On July 3, 2003, at 8:35 PM, on Broadfield Road in Manlius New York, my cousin and I observed a wingless oval shaped object traveling from east to west for 15 to 20 seconds overhead, before it went behind the area's trees. The angle of observation was from 50 degrees to 85 degrees relative to the horizon. The object was the size of an aspirin tablet held at arm's length. It appeared metallic and was a dark copper color and reflected the setting sun's rays and had gold highlighting. The object emitted no sound or contrail. It flew about the same speed as a commercial jet airliner at a medium high cruising altitude. The night was clear except for a few cirrus cloud wisps, which the object was visually below. At 10:00 PM we observed a white light traveling at very high speed from the south to north, which covered the whole visible sky in approximately five seconds and then disappeared. Report filed with FAA Hancock Airport and requests through freedom of information act filed with FAA for area radar data. Submitter of this report is a former U.S. Army Military Policeman and is currently a Senior Computer Systems Architect for a major U.S. medical insurance firm.
