Blimplike object over Foxboro Mass stadium at sunset illuminated by sun. Out of season and disappeared too fast

I am reporting this because I saw your 12/19/00 report over the Foxboro (New England Patriots) stadium only recently and it reminded me of what I saw. On or about the same date at about 5:15 pm on a sunny day at sunset I saw what I thought was the blimp that usually over the stadium. It reflected the reddish orange glow of the sun and was a horizontal oval. I was on rt 95 north of the stadium about 5 miles and was looking south directly toward the stadium. I observed it for 15 seconds or so and lost sight of it as I went lower into the valley. I know the area well so I know the object was over the stadium or very close to it. It would have been 200 to 300 feet long to see it at that distance, about the size of the blimp. It seemed odd at the time that it would be there because it was too cold for any event and none were in season. When I could view the stadium area again, in only two or three minutes, it was gone. The blimp would not have gone so fast. Could you get me in touch with the fellow who reported his sighting in Foxboro so we could compare notes.
