Sighting Details

I was a NY State Corrections Officer on my way to work at Chateaugay Correctional Facility on Rt 11 . At approx. 10:30 p.m. a very huge bright light caught my eye at maybe 1/2 mile or less in distance . I kept watching as I was driving and suddenly it started going up and down very quickly. I pulled over to get a better look and the object lurched forward a couple of times at an amazingly quick rate of speed and then up . As I reached for my hunting binoculars while never taking my eyes off of the object which was now approx. 1/4 of a mile away it shot all the way over to the Canadian horizon leaving a trail of light and disappeared from my view. There was no noise that I could hear and the stream of light reminded me of the same stream of light displayed on the show Star Trek when they go into hyper drive , that is the best way I can describe it. When I arrived at the prison another officer was telling his story because he had seen it also. I stopped him and stated what I had just saw and the other officers concurred that he had just said the same thing. I was in the U.S. Navy for four years and saw just about every jet that our military has and never have I ever seen anything that would even come close to the maneuvering and speed capability of that craft. I also lived near Plattsburgh Air Force Base for 19 years and would see their aircraft taking off and landing at night on thousands of occasions and they all make plenty of noise that can be heard from long distances .
