Location: Newport, RI
Duration:3 to 4 minutes
|Large dark stationary object with dark stationary object.
From Newport RI next to the Coast Guard Station at the Oceancliff resort, looking west toward Jamestown RI a half hour before sunset.
I and ((name deleted)) (my wife’s brother in law) observed a dark stationary object in the western sky, silhouetted against a clear sky. I estimated it to be 10 to 15 miles away so it was a large craft.
It had no lights and it appeared they have some type of stationary dark stationary object. It looked to be about 2000 feet.
I was not able to get a good camera shot of the object as it was approaching dusk and hard to see.
