dear chris
    today (dec 4) at 4:25 pm est (21:25 gmt)  in highland mills ny =
(41.35N  74.13W) when i saw something, moving north to south, high up, =
west of me.  it seemed to be a plane with a short, double contrail.  the =
front was a steady, bright white-yellow light, the "contrails" never =
grew in length.  as it moved south it seemed to be far brighter than a =
plane would be.  any chance that this was a meteor, skipping on the =
atmosphere?  Have you folks heard anything?
