Location: Lancaster, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:10-12 seconds
Fast white light horizon to horizon 10 seconds flat

I was driving east on US 30 in Lancaster County just east of Lancaster city around 1945 local time. A white light caught my eye first from the upper left side of my windshield and proceeded towards the southeast. It was not as high as jet liner traffic and appeared about as high as a cessna would fly, or it was very far away. The sky was clear. This light traveled from the west north west side of the highway towards the southeast until it was out of my sight in about 10 to 12 seconds. I've never seen anything fly so fast it's speed was comparable to a meteorite and I first thought that was what it was, but it had no tail and did not burn out. The light did not flicker or change intensity, it remained the same until it was out of sight in the southeast. I immediately grabbed the cb radio microphone and said "did anyone else see that" and someone else said they saw it also and never saw anything go across the sky so fast.
