Duration: 30 seconds
Bright white object moving very fast.

While taking a left onto somerville avenue, I noticed a bright white object in the western sky. It was moving very fast, and at a low elevation. It's direction was heading north. I checked and made sure the ISS wasn't visible, and confirmed it was not the ISS per NASA's website.

During this night the winds were calm and skies clear. I confirmed on the Boston Logan airport radar archive no aircraft were in the area or heading in the direction which I viewed this object.

I viewed the object for only about 20 seconds at most due to its speed. It had no features I could see. I believe it was too far away to hear an audible noises if it was creating any. I hope others report this object as well.
