It's the right area for an ASW test, which is why I said it's possible. That's the right array of aircraft for a test too. The EP-3 could be used for signals data, the P-3, CP-140, and P-8 to localise the target for the system being tested, and monitor underwater performance.
It looks like a meteor, but if they were going to test a new ASROC system that would be the place and the aircraft to do it.
While I see many of these, I do expect to see quite a few a little later this month as one of the bigger showers will be occurring. The Lyrids. This shower will be visiable for over a week with the peak day being on the 22. Should really be a great week, weekend to be looking up.
Lyra is visible from the northern hemisphere from spring through autumn, and nearly overhead, in temperate latitudes, during the summer months.
