Location: Wakefield, MA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 3 seconds
I saw a bright lighted circle just above a tree which then quickly dipped straight down behind the tree blocking my vision of it.

I walked out of my house to take out the trash, and I saw a large, brightly illuminated white circle just above a tree across the street. It then immediately dipped behind the tree and I couldn't see it any more.

Many planes go over my neighborhood on their way to and from Logan, so I know it wasn't a plane. It was much too large and amorphous to have been a plane,traveled too fast, and dipped very quickly straight down.

I knew I had seen something inexplicable, and I am a keen observer of the skies.

I have never seen anything like this before, and my heart was pounding with fear.
