Location: Hancock, MD
Shape: Light
Duration:1.5 minutes
Circular light flying low, not blinking and no sound.

The guys were working on the lawnmower and I was standing on the back porch.

As usual I was scanning the sky. There was a circular non blinking light traveling from the northwest to the southeast about as high as a piper cub would normally fly. We all saw it both with the naked eye and using 10-50 binoculars. Even after dark (this sighting was at dusk) airplanes are distinguishable through binoculars and this remained a circular bright light. It was traveling at approximately half the speed of a piper cub and there was no sound. It wasn't a helicopter because they can be heard even from within the house. Just before it went too low on the horizon to see anymore a small plane passed it. The plane was obviously a plane.
