|My husband and I were sitting outside the Atlantic Inn on Block Island, New Shoreham, Rhode Island at 10:13 PM on Saturday, July 6, 2019. We were at a high elevation facing north north west.
I turned to my right to speak to my husband and I saw a white glowing object approaching him from behind at a incredibly fast speed, I said, "Oh, my God," and he looked up and saw the object pass over his head and we watched it zoom out of sight straight away from us in the north north west direction. Its trajectory would’ve had it aiming toward Charlestown, Rhode Island.
It was about 2000 feet off the ground and I believe it to be about 20 foot diameter. It was round in shape, it was completely glowing white, it was silent, flew by at incredible speed.
We were at high enough elevation that I saw it come toward me from the far horizon and saw it disappear at the opposite horizon. Its trip across the entire sky took less than two seconds. I would estimate it flew at 5000 ! mph, given that I know jets fly around 500 mph. It was the fastest thing I had ever seen in flight.
I am certain it was not a private plane, drone, commercial jet, weather balloon, or shooting star. I think it was awfully low to the ground to be some government equipment.
Wondering if anyone else saw anything.
