Object Flight Path
Last night my wife and I went to our font yard to have, our nightly, cigarette break together. We were talking for about 3 minutes or so, when all of a sudden a bright blue orb with a redish trail, very low altitude flew east to west. It also continuously reflected a very bright whitish light - like the flash of a camera. It happened for about 6 seconds or so, but I do not think it was a meteor- these lights were unbelievably radiant and long lasting. I've seen meteors before - this in my opinion - was not one.
My wife panicked and went upstairs to make sure the kids were ok. I stayed outside and 3 woman who happened to be walking by - I stopped and asked them if they had just seen that blue light in the sky. They had - and were in shock just as we were. We looked up to see if it would reappear but it was gone. It definetly wasn't any kind of plane - as I'm currently a student pilot and know about planes. And I don't think it was a meteor - cause aside from the way it looked - cause nothing could go that fast, that low, without making noise.
I'm still shocked today, and neither my wife or I got a good night's rest cause of it. Of course I didn't get any pictures, as this was the last thing I expected to see last light and also it happened so fast.
