Location: West Des Moines, IA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Blue light that look about as bright as Venus streaked across the sky from the south to the north. I am in apartments sw of the I-235 and I-80 interchange. My apartment has a balcony that faces north and I was in my living room. It could have a been a firework, but I could throw a rock and hit I80 from my apartment as it is right by it, therefore someone would have to be out on the freeway shooting them off. It would have to have been traveling at least 300 miles per hour, but there was no sound. It could have been part of the Air National Guard stationed in Des Moines, but there was no sonic boom and I think they are prohibited from travelling that fast this close to the city.
