501 Feet - 1 Mile
Object Flight Path
I was attending a wedding reception in East Seatauket, NY on Sunday August 25, 2013. The time was approximately 9 pm Eastern. At the time of the sighting I was outside, it was very dark with little lighting beyond the deck area. There is a small airport to the east of the sighting location. The flight path runs from north to south and one can observe the planes on part of their approach approximately a mile or so away. They were clearly not the source of the light that I observed. I observed a red ball of light approaching from the east, the direction of the airport. I and some of the other people there expressed the thought that it was a plane. While the others turned away I continued to watch as the object, about the size of a dime from my vantage point, as it approached and passed by. It was about 500 or so feet in the air, no sound (if it was a plane I was close enough that I would have heard it), no pulsating or strobe like effect. The flight path was a straight line. There was not trail or debris coming from the object. It was, all in all, a rather non-nonchalant sighting. Just another red object of unknown origin passing by in the night sky. I continued to watch it as it disappeared in the distance. I seemed to be the only one interested in what it was and where it came from. I was not intoxicated at the time.
