Location: Bartlesville, OK
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
medium bright star moving south to north at great speed.

we saw a light only about as strong as medium starlight. the object travelled south to north (slightly irratic but basically straight) the object appeared to be very high but it did not streak like a meteor. the only thing which struck me as odd was the speed at which it was moving. it tracked across the entire sky in a minute or less I had seen an aircraft moving at high altitude 30 or so miutes earlier it was flashing and more than one color... this was not flashing or twinkling just a medium bright star(in town probably much brighter out of town) it was just whitish light. we are not near any military airbase or place associated with strange objects, swamp gas, or crop circles... so a simple moving object in ther sky moving at such a speed strikes me as strange.
