Duration: 1 hour
No of observers: 1

Location: Rockport, MA, USA

Shape: Circle
Characteristics: Lights on object

I saw an odd shaped flying object followed by a thunder-like sound.

On a Saturday night in a semi-forested area I saw a what looked circular or oval-shaped flying object. It looked to round to be a air plane in my opinion. It flew as fast as would a normal plane (which makes me think it may have actually just been a plane) and it had two or three blinking lights on it, one red and two blue. Though I was the only person who saw it at least twenty people, including myself, heard an odd noise before and after the object was within sight (note: the sound was not heard while the object was in sight). The sound was very similar to soft thunder (even though the sky was clear). Some people thought it may have been fireworks, but the soound was too continuous to be from fireworks. I even speculated that it could have been sheets and cloth flapping in the wind, for it did sound like that just stronger and farther away. Was this an extra-terrestrial phenomenon, I'm still skeptical. I'm postimng because I want to hear if other p! eople who know more about UFO's think this could be something that is out-of-this-worldly.
