Bat-shaped glider over Franklin, MA.

Odd black bat- or bird-shaped object a couple of hundred feet up, drifted lazily northwest until it disappeared behind the tree canopy horizon.

Object never flapped, so it seemed unlikely to have been a bird. It appeared to have something rope-like dangling from it, so we think it may have been a kite.

I looked at it through a 9x scope, but couldn't gather any additional details.
