The object already in motion was hurtling away and ascending

On the approximate date above I was fishing alone on a boat at Pumpkin Pond in the town mentioned above.

I looked up and saw a silvery round shaped object passing overhead at an incredible speed. The object made no noise and at this high rate of speed gradually climbed up and out of site into the clouds.

I have seen the Blue Angels perform on two occasions in my life. I know what a fighter jet looks like at 600 MPH and the sound it makes. I'm surprised I even saw this object but when I looked up for some reason there was this object whizzing overhead and ascending up and out of site away from me at a speed faster than anything I have ever witnessed.

From my perspective it looked about the size of a basketball but I was able to see it disappear into clouds. More than likely the object is 4-6 feet in diameter.
