Shape: Light
Duration:5 sec.
Bright light go's threw 1/2 the sky and over the horizen in 5 sec.

Me and my father was pumping the oil well and I was looking up in the sky at the stars and I said dad look at that light up in the sky , it is going really fast . It was a bright white /yellow light . It covered 1/2 the sky distance in 5 sec. and we watched it go out of sight over the horizen . The light was not flashing , it was on the whole time . At first I thought that it was a falling star but when it went the intire distance of the sky I knew that it wasn't . There was no tail , just a bright light going very fast .
