Location: Braintree, MA
Duration:8 - 10 min.
|A friend of mine in Braintree, Mass. was the observer and reported "sighting" to me. Witness observed very bright light in the West. (Normal aircraft patterns are always in a North/South direction). Light approached witness' position (looking out of window). Light very bright -- much brighter than a star. It took approx. 8 - 10 minutes for object to reach his location and only noise he heard "sounded like a soft, gentle whirrrrr". Witness stated that it was a very bright, single light -- not aircraft landing lights.|
