Location: Winthrop, ME
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Silent white light.

I witnessed a single bright white/blue (like an arc welder) light traveling in a south easterly direction. Approximately 1500 feet high moving about 200mph. It was silent. No blinking lights. Not a plane, not a helicopter and not a meteor.

I had a bright flash light in hand as I was outside to observe an expected meteor shower. I recognized it was something unusual right away. I decided to blink my flash light at it, to see if it would respond. I blinked my light twice. The light immediately changed course. Now traveling straight up from my view point. It disappeared into space. The sky was extremely clear and made this all a stunning experience. It happened quickly.
