Location: Marlborough, MA
Shape: Chevron
Duration:aprox. 5 min.
At approximately 13:05 I was looking out a window at work, when I spotted a fairly stationary object in the air above our company parking lot, shaped like a chevron or elongated delta form. I’m not sure of the height, but the object would have been hidden by a quarter, placed in front of me at arm’s length. It seemed to "float," moving slightly back and forth. I immediately thought it was a hawk soaring on thermals, as I’ve seen them in this area before. This lasted about 5 minutes, and then the object moved away from me and was beyond the horizon in just a matter of 3 to 5 seconds, without leaving any type of contrail. That’s when I realized it wasn’t a hawk, nor an airplane, because of the great speed at which it disappeared. I’ve watched high-flying jets and they literally take minutes to travel from directly overhead to the horizon.
