|Blue ball of light arching in the sky in Warwick, Rhode Island
Driving home from work at 17:11 hours, going East on Rt. 37 to Post Road. I noticed a blue ball of light that turned white at the edges in the distance beyond the Toyota dealership. I thought it was a plane (the airport is nearby), but the ball of light fell quickly, in an arching motion, in a southerly direction and disappeared behind trees/the horizon. It looked almost like a shooting star, but much, much closer and was surely in our immediate atmosphere. It was still light out and the object left no exhaust trail.
