Roslindale, MA

Sighted on Monday 17. February 2003

Shape: Oval | Duration: 1 min.

On my way to work, walking down a road, about 5:30 am, before sunrise, I looked to the northeast and saw a descending shape, like an airplane. From the road, I could see the tops of the city's skyscrapers. From the distance, I assumed the "craft" to be an airplane landing at the local airport. Two things bothered me about the thing. One, it seemed larger than most aircraft I have ever seen land there. Two, it glided in towards the city and did not seem to be any color of any airplane I have ever seen, either. Also, it glowed with a strange orange lumininous crackle, and when I looked at it for very long, it hurt my eyes to do so. Black dots seemed to float around this thing, but I thought it might have been a trick of my eye. The thing seeming larger might have made its location closer rather than further. Again, it was very unusual. I am sure that it was not the sun, or a falling star. I am convinced that it was a vehicle meant for airflight, but not of any human construction that I know.((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witness might have observed an airliner landing, with the rising sun reflecting off of its surface. That is only a guess. PD))
