Duration:10 seconds
Looking for the comet Linear through 7X50 binoculars, I observed an object barely bright enough to be visible passing from the star known as 45 UMA to the star known as 30 UMA in an unbroken straight line in approximately 10 seconds. Further viewing was obscured by the headlamps of automobiles passing my location at the intersection of SR 8 and SR 39. An commercial passenger aircraft had passed through my field of view just moments before; the faint object was far too high and fast to be an airplane of any conventional kind.
