|Long, steady flight path leaving a trail the width of a finger held at arms
Steady flight path WSW to ENE, Bright as an commercial airplane from 2 miles away, leaving a trail the width of a finger held at arms length. The trail was like you would see from fireworks - bright, with very definite glowing "sparkles" trailing behind - not a flame like trail. My wife and I saw it straight in front of us (facing south), at an elevation of about 30 degrees. It moved left ro right. I would describe the left to right movement as going from 12:00 (straight ahead) to 11:00 in 8 seconds or so. We watched move straight and level as best we could tell untill it disappeared over the rooftops.
