Location: Baltimore, MD
Shape: Light
Duration:8 seconds
Stationary white light then picking up speed from the east to the west; arcing across sky; too fast for plane

Stationary light (slightly larger than a star & slightly brighter); then travelled at an increasing speed from almost due east, going towards the south. Angle of original trajectory was about 20 degrees upwards towards the south and bending in a south-southeasterly direction; slowly, at first, then increasing its speed (was much faster than a plane, that would appear as the same size). Travelled in a small arc (towards the west), until going out of sight. There were no colors; just the bright white star-like dot. No sound (although it looked too high for any sound to be detected.)When first seen, it was slightly above the tree-tops in the east of my position. Could easily be seen, even with the ground lights below it. (Had a similar sighting about 10 months ago, which was not reported)
