Observer
NameDerrick P
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was driving northbound on I95 in Attleboro and it appeared dead center in front of me. It started with a small flash, I thought it was lights of a plane. It then got bigger as it was moving to the left. I'm not exact on the angles or directions because I was driving when I saw it, but if you were standing on the highway and held a clock at about 45 degrees above your head in front of you, the flash started in the center and moved in the direction of the 8. I did not see it dissappear it went behind trees and I lost sight of it. I have never seen anything like it. There were alot of other people on the road when it happened I hope they report it too. The highway almost came to a stop. It was that hard to miss.
