|Constant streak of light in the westward sky, too high up to be in normal airspace, 6:20pm
It was about 6:20pm and my friend and I were leaving work when she noticed someting in the western sky. At first it looked like the backdraft of a jet, but there was no smoke and it was traveling all together, no trail of smoke was left behind. It was reddish orange and there seemed to be a small black dot in front of the red line. The best way to describe the object itself is it looked like a constant streak of light. It was moving southward, too high to be in normal airspace. It was moving very slowly at first, but then gradually sped up, slowed back down, and faded away. The colors never changed, and the object remained intact.
((NUFORC Note: If the witnesses were not looking at a contrail, illuminated by the setting sun, then we don't know what they witnessed. PD))
