While playing acoustic music at a city park, two of us in a circle of five were facing South-East when a brilliant light streamed across the sky in a Southwesterly direction. We've had air shows at our local airport and at first I didn't think it was anything we couldn't come up with. It was too bright to distinguish a form but the light remained oblong then suddenly it split, that is, a section of it shot forth. I later came home and heard a caller on Art Bell describe this except that what I saw was MUCH brighter than Venus.
