Geographic location of the bug: Suburban town in Connecticut, USA

Your letter to the bugman: This moth (?) was found in early June on a warm, sunny day on the playground of a elementary school in Connecticut. I could not capture a better photo before it flew away, however it was VERY large. Out of curiosity, I did some research to identify the moth but had no luck. The only related species that I found were Atlas moths, but none were inhabitants of the area or displayed such interesting markings. Any ideas what this bug could be?
