Location: Charlestown, RI
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:30 seconds
White cylinder with orange flames hovering at rooftop height.

It was a very dark night without a moon. I looked up to admire the bright stars, turned and noticed a white cylinder hovering over a tennis court 100 yards away. It was upright like a big coffee can with orange flames coming out of the bottom. It hovered back and forth for a few seconds and moved away and seemed to disappear. I wish I had time to take a picture, but I was in shock and trying to rationalize that it was some kind of remote control toy. I decided that it was not a toy since there were obvious flames coming out of the bottom. I wish someone had seen this with me....I was not drinking, but I am a skeptic about these things...or I should say I was...I can't get the picture and experience out of my mind.
