Extremely Fast (Hypersonic+) aircraft (UFO) captured on Live TV over Providence, RI....Please Help me ID this thing.

At exactly 11:22:16pm, while I was watching WPRI 12 channel news they cut to a live view facing the cameras East towards the Biltmore and Westin Hotels. At this time some type of object coming from the North and heading South was flying past at a fairly low altitude but was going at what appears to me as an extremely fast (beyond Hypersonic speeds). I needed to slow it down and watch it over again (which I did about 20+ times) at about 1/6 of the normal speed and pausing at different times. I noticed at this 1/6 speed that it was on camera for less than 2-3 seconds total which indicated to me that its speed was unbelievably fast. Upon watching it over and over again, at different speeds, different time frames etc, it appears to be as best I could make out some type of aircraft (of Unknown origin). It honestly could have been some type of fighter jet at hypersonic speeds....but why so low? I tried to DVR this and my DVR said it was having "difficulties at! this time." (<--Im not saying there is some conspiracy I am only indicating to you why I couldn't record and save this event). I would ask for help in getting a copy of this from WPRI channel 12 news of this live broadcast, re-analyzing it, and then possibly contacting TF Greene Airport officially to see if they have record of what, if any, aircraft was flying through there. Unfortunately, yet very awkwardly, is the fact that this airport is approximately 10-15 miles from providence and in the same direction of this probable aircraft, however I do know for a fact that given its speed it was NOT coming in for a landing and it was definitely NOT some plane taking off as I have seen 100's of planes do both of these and this aircraft was flying at extremely High rate of speed that I can't even explain in words. It almost looks like a streak across the sky like a meteor, but it was not at all bright like one, it didn't "fizzle out" like a meteor and it was clo! se by....like right over the city it appears. The trajectory (! i.e. ang le) of this "UFO" is completely inconsistent with a meteor also. I hope you don't think this is a joke, or just some crazy red neck farmer who had been drinking too much…

I am a highly educated, liberal college professor and Registered Nurse from the Northeast who is 100% sober and yet dumbfounded as to what this could be/is. Please help me if you can. Thanks
