Location: West Springfield, MA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
I was walking my dog when I saw this light in the sky. I'm a plane buff so I tend to look up at the sky. This light I spotted seemed to be making unusual movements or: corkscrew movements. I thought it may have been a trick of my viewpoint because I was walking my dog. So I stopped to get perspective. I looked for a Stobe light but didn't see one flashing. Also, didn't see any colored lights on this object. I did see a sideways sort of movement. I didn't hear any noise such as I would have expected from a prop or jet engine. I don't believe it was a satellite. I have seen satellites before and their movements are more straight lined than this objects. If it was a plane I would guess it's height at about 30 thousand feet. It was heading in an easterly direction.
