|unusual light in sky
I was driving north on Rte. 2, right near the Exeter/North Kingstown town line. I went around a curve near Exeter Road and the RI veterans cemetery, when all of a sudden something in the sky caught my eye. It kind of looked like a star, but the partly cloudy skies made seeing stars very difficult. bright white or blue light. it moved west, curving a little bit before disappearing behind a cloud. the way it moved reminded me of a kid playing with a laser pointer on a wall...kind of an S-shaped curve. it was fast...but I've seen meteor showers before and it definitely wasn't as fast as a meteor. It definitely wasn't an airplane...it was moving too fast and its turns were much too quick.
