Location: Providence, RI
Shape: Other
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Object shaped like a backslash (\) zoomed across downtown Providence sky.

I was driving down North Main Street in Providence towards downtown. It was sunset so the airplanes over the city had their lights on which attracted my attention to the sky. All of the sudden I saw a silver diagonal line much like a backslash (\) zoom across the sky right over the city towards college hill. It was moving faster than anything I had ever seen and as soon as I realized what was going on, it disappeared.
