|Bright flash of light, turning to pinpoint of light that traveled silently and quickly through night sky of NH.
At 9:40 pm, husband and wife were meteor watching when a bright flash of white light (as if someone snapped a photo with a large flash) from the Southern sky caught our attention. We noted a small pinpoint of light traveling quickly from the flash’s point of origin. The object was too high to be a plane and silent. It traveled in an arc overhead at a steady rate of speed from South to North until we lost sight of it over the mountains into Canada.
We originally thought that it might be the space shuttle, but after checking the NASA channel realized the shuttle was still docked at the space station and not orbiting. We are first time posters and have never seen anything prior to last night to warrant a report. Interested to know if other people witnessed anything similar in the area.
