|I saw a small mettalic silver sphere at 3200 feet.
To whom it may concern:
On April 19, 2015, my wife and I, along with our two young grandchildren, were flying home in our personal aircraft from Martha’s Vineyard to our home airport, between New Bedford, MA, and Lincoln, RI, at 3200 MSL.
I witnessed a small round object about 150 feet higher than our plane and about 50 feet beyond our left wing. The time was 2:10 local.
The round object appeared to be approximately between two and three feet in diameter, from that distance. It was silver metallic in color.
I do not know if the object was stationary or moving but it passed to our left side of our plane.
The report was reported to Providence air traffic control.
The sighting was no longer than 10 seconds.
