Object Flight Path
At 9 PM myself and my wife were on our deck when we both noticed a bright red-orange light pulsating and moving fast across the sky. First thought was aircraft but I quickly realized it was not the standard aircraft "strobe" lights. The lights were pulsating 1.5 seconds on, 1 second off.
My wife noticed as well that there was an actual aircraft within the same view and the comparison of the lights and speed were not even close. The object was moving 100 times faster than the aircraft. From the time we noticed it from the southwest horizon / treeline to going out of view to the northeast it took approximately 5 minutes. I would estimate that at over 400 miles covered in that small amount of time. Myself and wife are both ex military and have been overseas and deployed, we know what aircraft strobes look like, this was a smooth pulsating light, not the sharp intense quick strobe. Also with aircraft you can normally tell the front from rear strobes alternating. This was on solid pulse.
It appeared to be about the same flight level as a commercial aircraft but much larger in size compared to the aircraft that was in view.
Last thing is the path it took, SW to N, is not a flight path for any commercial aircraft. There is a commercial route that almost all the airlines take moving through the northeast which is SE to NW. I have lived here for 15 years and never seen an aircraft take that path. If it continued on that path it would of been SE of Greenland very quickly and then over open water.
