Shape: Light | Duration: 2min

Bright orb shaped light over BosonRunning in a South East direction I saw a bright white orb shaped light. It moved as though it were heading upwards but vertically. Saw it dim as it passed through a very thin veil of clouds. Otherwise a very clear, sunny day. During a morning run I see a lot of aircraft coming into Logan. This was very high up and way too bright for a plane. The proportion would have been different. As was the case when a European airline on it's way to NY or Chicago flew over the same location serveral minutes later and was barely visible except for it's comtrail. The object in question had no trail.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain anonymous. No other reports from this area of the country for this date. We wonder whether the witness is simply describing the Sun. PD))((FOLLOW-UP MESSAGE FROM WITNESS))You doubt the poeple who post here now????Look, how stupid do think I am? I read your little note at the bottom of my report and it says maybe the witness was looking at the sun???? I assure you I know what the sun looks like and this thing was nowhere close to it in size or behavior. I think I mentioned it was a clear day... If you REALLY want to know what I saw, check back to 8/01 on your report logs. A woman in a car in rush hour traffic, about two miles from me, saw exactly the same thing. I got a chill reading it. Someone said it made the news here but I'm not sure if that's true.The sun! Please.((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the witness saw, but we at first allowed for the possibility that the report might be a hoax, to see if we would "buy into" posting a sighting report about the Sun. We have received that type of report in the past. No other reports received from Boston for this alleged event. PD))
