Location: Mt. Holly Springs, PA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:approx 5-7 sec.
Was at computer facing toward window, when my attention was drawn to an extremely bright electric blueish light (similar to a welding arc in intensity/brightness and color) moving very low on horizon between 25 to 35 degrees off horizon, moving left to right (west to northeast) at a very high rate of speed and leaving an extremely long trail or tail. Only viewed for perhaps 5 to 7 seconds until it went out of view due to the house. I ran outside but by then it had burned out. I suspect either space debris or meteor re-entering atmosphere, but was faster, closer, lower to horizon, brighter and with longer tail than any meteorite I've ever seen! The size and brightness would seem to indicate it was relatively close to my location, however no sonic boom was heard.
