|9/10/05 Bright Light with tail moved quickly southward in Fulton County, Georgia
my daughter saw a light moving quickly across the sky and shouted for me to look up. when i did i saw something that seemed to be generally round in shape (though not exactly) move very quickly straight across the sky above us. it disappeared beyond the tall trees near us. it was similar in its appearance and movement to a shooting star, but it was MUCH closer to earth and lasted at least 5 seconds rather than 1 second.
my daughter had a longer look at it and said that it had a fairly long tail and that she saw some red color in it. i only saw bright white. it was strange to see something so obviously intense and unusual. we expected to hear some kind of burning or crashing sound follow, but there was nothing but dead silence. it was unnerving.
we are located in fulton county, georgia, and the object was moving due south across the sky.
