Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Bright, silvery-white light/object smoothly and silently traverses the night sky.

It was a crisp and clear night, dry, after two days of rain. I stepped outside to the front yard, which faces south, to get something out of my car, when right in front of me about 10 thousand feet up was a bright silvery-white light, slightly oblong, without defined shape. It was smoothly and silently headed southeast east, but as I went out to get a better view of it, it moved in a very smooth arc due east, out toward the bay and open ocean. Its speed was constant, faster than a small prop plane, but not quite as fast as a jet. I had the impression that it saw me take notice of it. That's when it changed direction from SE to E. There were no flashing lights, just the solid bright white light. It was very similar if not identical to others that I have observed over my house in the past several months. All were headed east or southeast, from the west or north west. This flight direction is opposite the flights of airliners from Greene Airport in Warwick, RI, where they fly on a northeast-southwest line over my house. I am about three miles from the south shore ocean of RI. Others I have observed faded out soon after I saw them moving, though their dark outline remained...darker than the sky. This object made no move to hide itself, but kept the same elevation as I watched it head out over the town of Narragansett and out toward open water to the east. I knew it would be a matter of time until I spotted another; it had been a few months since last seeing one. Because of the chance encounters I have had and their numbers, it makes me conclude that either there have been several or many more fly overs at different times that I have missed, or they are making their flyovers when I'm actually out and looking! It does seem like they want me to observe them, and possibly even report them. It makes me wonder.
