Cook also posted a link of the video on Reddit where a detailed information has been shared. In this particular description, he says that he was driving towards home at around 12:30 AM from New Paltz to Harriman. Halfway through his road trip, he noticed the object at the left of the highway. Cook observed that the perspective he saw of the object’s three lights never changed as he was driving passed it on the right.
Some comments for the video suggest it is a fake, a large military aircraft or lights on a fix structure such as building, cell phone or microwave tower. One local comments that towers in the area have only one light and not many as seen in the video. Furthermore, this local reveals that the lights in the towers are spaced far apart. It is also important to note that Cook might had been near Stewart International Airport as it is a little more than midway between Harriman and New Paltz.
