Location: Millstadt, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Summary : blue light traveling due west ended in red flash appeared to be close overhead. I think it was space junk or meteor due to similar sightings over a broad area.

Due to the fact that the object was on a precise east to west trajectory, in line with the earth's rotation, I would guess that it was probably space junk burning up in the atmosphere.
