Duration:40 seconds
I was riding parallel to downtown Louisville on the Indiana side of the Ohio river. Was In "Floyds knobs" in New Albany, Ind....looking South-South west. I was in the passenger side of the vehicle facing above direction. My friend was driving. Floyds Knobs provides an optimum view of the city skyline and is a favored area for such viewing.I glanced skyward and observed a "streaking" object rapidly advancing West to East over the city. The object was of the intensity of an atypical star. perhaps indicative of its distance. Having taken astronomy in college it was certainly NOT a comet, incoming asteroid or other debris. The object when DIRECTLY over the city released an apparent projectile. Both objects were white in color. the secondary object "streaked" On an apparent trajectory towards the city itself. The object secondary object dissapeared from view when it was washed out by the city lights below. The initial primary object continued rapidly in a westerly direction eventually fading from view.

I am a full time college student . My companion at he time is as well.
