Shape: Circle
Duration:3-4hours
Small dot in daylight sky, moved with exceptional speed after staying in one place for three hours. Strange

A co-worker and myself first spotted a dot way up in the sky as we were building a deck on a new house in Martha's Vineyard. I looked out at the beautiful day as we always did from this beach front property, not a cloud in the sky. As I was taking in our surroundings I looked almost straight up following a hawk that lived in the tree next to our deck, as I did I saw this dot in the sky I stopped for about 30 to 40 seconds which made my co-worker ask what I was looking at and I said to him "can you see that up there"? He replied yeah that little spot and I said something to the affect that "wow it isn't moving at all" and he agreed. We kept an eye on it as time went by and told others as they came into our area everyone noticed it and that's when things began to get strange because we all agreed it was something big but it was so far up that we could not make it out. Not one of us wanted to blurt out the dreaded UFO phrase but I had to because this thing was bugging me now. We would go back to work for a while and stop to look up and it stayed there. Finally luch time arrived and we all took a look as we made the lunch list and at almost noon time to the second this thing just began to drop straight down and it looked round and silver before we noticed that it headed east at a clip unreconisable to me, it moved so fast as we all watched it leave. The five of us just amazed at this point agreed we had just witnessed a UFO and knowing there wasn't a thing we could do about it we continued our work and told everyone on the island what we had seen. A women from Chillmark that worked at the local restaurant also saw this object in the sky so I know were not crazy.
