Hey everyone. I was recently out looking at the sky due to Venus, Mars, Jupiter, the Moon, all being visible in the sky, and are quite the sight
While I was looking at them I noticed a very bright object in the sky roughly the same apparent size as one of the planets I was looking for.
Unfortunately I was driving so it took me a while to get organized, and get a better view, but ultimately I determined it was an aircraft(s) of sorts.
Here is an example of what the plane looked like. I contemplated that it was an escort of sorts, but the lights at the front were flashing at almost
the same time, and they didn't appear to change distance between each other/other lights. I determined that there was most likely one object, or one
object as a result of being connected (re-fuel in the air, a "tugboat" plane.
The black doted line is a guess of what the frame would look like, so to give reference for the lights. After this plane passed I saw another similar
one flying low, and loud, and the beams of the headlights were visible being reflected off fog/clouds. I was able to see outline of this plane very
clearly. In comparison I wasn't able to see a frame for plane in question.
The two strobes coming off what I believe to be the wing tips were a super-bright white, which looks blue. In the middle of the plane, behind the
wings, were two very bright lights that remained lit, and were not strobes. These lights had a yellow hue to them, and despite being so bright I
couldn't see any reflection off the bottom of the plane.
I'm very interested if anyone has any ideas of what this plane could be? It was very strange, and I haven't ever seen something like that before.
Is there a tool I can use for tracking past air traffic in an area? If so I can go back and look at what was supposed to be up there at the time. I'm
in Massachusetts for those interested.
Is there enough room to attach say a hummer to the back of a plane, and still land in a conventional landing, without hitting it against the ground?
I'd be interested to see if it's possible something was attached to it. After thinking about it, I'm reminded of a dragonfly idea, or the Falcon
Thanks for the help. Sorry if I wasn't very clear, and that I don't have any videos, or pictures. Most likely it's nothing, but I'm interested in
what could be lit up like that regardless of if it is ATS or just TS
