... splits into two orbs after first dropping a white orb.
Niagara Falls, New York - 04-16-15
Shape: Light - Duration: 20 seconds
Glowing red orb travels across the sky and splits into two orbs after first dropping a white orb.
Light resembling a red road flare, slightly flickering, travelling north and meandering. No FAA light, headlights or wing lights.
Suddenly it dropped a faint white light that disappeared within one second, then approximately ten seconds later, directly overhead, split into two separate lights, one white, one red, which cruised alongside each other for maybe two seconds before switching color and intensity with each other.
Then the white one (original red light) disappeared and the new red light continued north-northeast for a few more seconds before fading and disappearing completely.
There was absolutely no sound. Weather was calm, with slight rain and low clouds. Light may have gone behind clouds.
Altitude seemed that of a cruising single prop plane or lower. I am a keen outdoors man whom trusts his senses and have not drank alcohol or taken any medication of any kind.
Airplanes are common and recognizable in this area as there is a public international airport and Air Force base close by. This light/object approached from the west of these air installations and traveled over the south edge of NY power reservoir before sighting ended.
This is not the first time I've seen unusual lights in this area but this was worth mentioning. My description does not convey how scary this was.
