Standing in my yard with my wife. Nice Clear Night. Playing with our Dog, looking at stars. We see satellites often. This wasn't a satellite or a an identifiable aircraft. I've been to many Air Shows and I'm familiar with military and commercial aircraft, as a remote interest.
in my left peripheral, I noticed a loan single slow-strobing light slowly ascending at about an 85 degree trajectory. Its lone dull white light would gradually fade on and off in roughly 2 second intervals. It did this the entire time I watched it ascend out of sight and into the clear black night/stars, which was a little over a minute.
The light was larger than stars while it was low in altitude but shrank as it ascended into the stars.
Once I realized it wan't a plane, or a satellite I called my wife's attention to it and we watched it ascend together for probably 30 to 40 seconds before it became too high to further see with the naked eye and disappeared among the stars.
My wife then went inside. I stayed out staring up in wonder. As soon as my wife went inside. A Bright Blue Streak (electric looking in nature or like the blue color of a welding arc)
It lit up left to right and shot across the entire sky in front of me, and over the south shore/ocean. It was only a split second. It startled me and caused me to Gasp and call for my wife to come back out but she didn't hear me and then it was gone. I want to say I heard a noise but I'm not sure I could describe it.
It was so bright blue, and straight. its ends just stopped unlike lightning. It had to be at least a 1/4 mile or longer. Perfectly straight blue streak with no breaks in it. Like a fluorescent light tube across the sky.
It appeared and was gone within 2 seconds. This wasn't lightning. I've seen lots of lightning. There was no lightning in the area that night. The night was a clear summer night.
