While sitting in my vehicle at work I observed an bright orb-like object hovering beside a jet con-trail over the very southern part of Great Sacandaga Lake NY.
I was facing south while looking at the object to my 11:00 position. The object hovered near the contrail for about 30 seconds and then slowly started to move left (east). The con-trail did not move, only dissipated.
I knew the object was moving so I grabbed my work camcorder. I filmed the object and held the camera as stead as possible to show its movement. I also moved the camera to zoom-in where, the object appeared fuzzy and shimmering in my video. I zoomed out and continued to monitor its movement. As it moved the object paused and then continued moving again several times.
One acceleration was particularly faster than it moved previously. I obtained great video and decided it was enough footage. The object stopped moving and my excitement left. I looked away to place the video on my computer and then looked back up and the object was gone.
