I was driving to work on the Mass Pike (I-90) between 8am and 8:30am. Although that day turned out to be overcast and rainy near the coast in Boston, at my current location just west of the I-495 exits it was a crystal clear morning with the sun radiant in the south eastern sky. As I was driving, I noticed what looked like a very large bright star high in the sky north of the highway. I have seen many day time moons. But, I was shocked to see such a bright star in such a bright sky. After some reflection, I assumed that it must be a satellite that was reflecting the bright sun from within the outer reaches of the atmosphere. But, then the shape began to change. I later realized that it must have been rotating. Because, it started to show a “nub” projecting out of on side. At this point it looked like the silhouette of a helicopter with a very thick tail, without being able to see the propellers or the tail fan. But, my “gut” told me that there was no way that a helicopter could be at that altitude or would normally be that big. This moment of uncertainty quickly became both moot and understated. At this point, I viewed the “star” for about a minute. The “helicopter” intermediate view lasted for about 30 seconds. And then, it was clear. I could clearly see an object with distinct features. Based on how high in the sky and my perception of the altitude, it appeared to be very large. It appeared to be white, glistening in the strong morning sun. The object consisted of a long cylinder capped on one end with a sphere with a diameter approximately 2x the diameter of the cylinder. To be certain, it was a clear day. I had lowered my window. I could see the object very clearly. I am not one that expects to see such a thing. I tried to rationalize it as one of the many commonly applied interpretations (weather balloon, military aircraft, optical effect in the atmosphere…etc.). But, it was too clear. I could definitively see the cylinder/sphere construction. Since I was driving on the Mass Pike, I could not just stop to take a picture. I looked up at the object. Look ahead at traffic. Look up. Looked ahead. This continued for over a minute. Then, it was gone. When I looked back ahead toward Boston, I saw another “star” over the city. Then, it was gone. I spent the last few days trying to rationalize an explanation. I have none.
