Reported: 3/16/2006 10:22:59 AM 10:22
Posted: 5/15/2006
Location: Passaconway, NH
Shape: Light
Duration:Aprox. 30 seconds
Bright light moving silently.

We were camped at the Passaconaway campground on Rte.112 aka The Kancamagus Highway. I walked to the bank of the Swift river which runs beside the campground. I noticed a light moving across the horizon from east to west. The night was cloudy and the light was below the clouds moving in a straight line. This was a solid bright white light traveling about the speed of a jet. I've seen jets before up in these mountains and they had blinking lights. Passaconaway is located in a mountain valley so the object could not have been more than mile from our location. I yelled to my brother inlaw and he also observed it. We did not here any sound and I backed away from the river listening for any noise as the object went out of sight.
