Location: Boston, MA
Shape: Light
Duration:<30 seconds
Three students (myself included) simultaneously observed a large, hovering white light orb above and to the east of the Hyatt Hotel near the Prudential Center in Boston’s Back Bay.

The orb remained perfectly stationary for about 10-15 seconds then, at a speed unknown to anyone present, dropped and vanished behind a nearby building. It took our breath away and one witness let out a scream.

The size of the orb and intensity of the light gave the impression of nearness—it seemed to be no more than a quarter of a mile away. There was no accompanying noise. We walked in the direction of the occurrence and found no evidence of aircraft, fireworks, drone, spotlight, etc...

Immediately after the orb dropped a brief period of silence was experienced by everyone in the group, not only the witnesses.
