Shape: Egg
Duration:10 seconds
Was outside looking at the constellations with a friend. We were observing Orion’s Belt and trying to locate Venus when I look to my left and see something wild. It is the brightest light I’ve ever seen in the sky at night, white/yellow/purplish colors. It was football shaped and relatively big.

The second I lay eyes on it, it flies extremely quickly to the left in a straight line and then in an instant vanishes. It left behind a shockwave in the sky that lasted about 4-5 seconds. I want to clarify that the light didn’t fly across the horizon, but rather, it vanished in a blink after flying for a bit. It was unbelievable.


Hi Peter,

It was early Saturday morning, the 24th, around 2:30 am.
Also, not sure why it says Sighting County: Virginia, but it happened up in Medford, MA.
Thanks for getting back to me!
