i was standing on my porch watching to meteor shower, had gone out several times tonight looking to see if i could watch the show (not much there), when a light caught my eye from way West and as i watched it from first sighting approximately the Nine O'clock point and approximately 45 degrees off the ground it was also about 15 degrees off my due left, so i could see it was not coming straight at me. there where not one light flashing so i knew right off it was not a plane and moving at the speed it was there was no way it could be anyway, it traveled from almost due West right over my head at this point it was about 85 degrees over head and had gone from 9 o'clock the 12 O'clock in about 40 to 60 SECONDS , and continued on at this speed until it was at the 2 /2:30 , 3 O'clock point just up and left of the quarter Moon, at which it just was gone. No Flash ,no anything ,just disappeared , not sure if it continued or not as the Moon was starting to wash out the sky making it look a little milky from the Sun glow adding to the milky-ness of the sky. On first sight i knew it was not a meteor as there was not trail and that it was not a plane because there where no lights blinking it glowed a steady color , which i am going with white center with a slight reddish ring round it. as it came over head there i could see it as a yellowish white with a red tone to the outer 'ring". I know we are not alone , and have seen "different things " several times in my life, but this was a WoW moment that got me writing this, it sent chills down my back the hair on my arms was on end and i got chill bumps. the whole thing was so fast i did not have time to get any pictures or video of it which really ticked me off ,, the whole sighting was like 2 minutes long , it moved THAT FAST.
