Shape: Light
Duration:3 Sec.
A bright flash of light streak across the sky from East to slight West but it appeared so quick and went up at an angle so fast it looked like a shooting star in reverse. It was about as fast as a shot of lighteing and just disappered.

I was on my way to my car and as I opened the door I was faceing South when the event took place. I could only explain that it looked like a round bright light moving across the sky at an angle East to West. It happend so fast I couldn't even say look at that to my wife or nephew. And it left no trail, living so close to Cape Canaveral I see launches all the time and this was not a rocket. I'm 54 and worked for a telecomunications company for 27 years and am retired but have been interested in watching the skys for quite some time and this was one of the wierdest things I've seen in a long time. I just thought you would like this info on this sighting, I don't know if it means anything to you but that is it.
