Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
I saw a white object shoot across the sky at about 50-100 feet high. Looked like a comet, but was way to close to the ground and was traveling horizontal to the ground and changed direction.

I was driving on the Merrit Parkway in Norwalk Ct(about exit 38) heading north/east. I saw a comet-like object shoot across the sky about 50-100 feet above the ground. It had a trail of light coming from the back of it, and changed direction. The total time I saw this was probably about 10 seconds. The object was moving very fast and lit up the entire sky. It was way to low to the ground to be a shooting star or a meteor. Also, I have seen many shooting stars and this was nothing like it.
