Location: Dennis, MA
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
White light passing W to E overhead, like an airplane, but not one.

Have recently started taking brief walks before sunrise. Because the air was exceptionally clear this morning, I stopped to look at the sky, and noticed a white light moving on a steady straight line approximately W to E. The speed was similar to a plane passing high overhead, but it didnít appear to be a plane, and I did not hear any sound as I watched it, or for a few seconds later. It was a non-blinking white light, or tight grouping of lights. At one point when it was directly overhead, it seemed to be shaped like a small elongated triangle.

I checked my cell phone for the time, 5:43, but did not attempt to take a photo. Later I used the Plane Finder website, which did not show any nearby plane flight paths at the time I saw this light. Perhaps it was a passing satellite.
