image in sky

On the 12th may 2006 at around 9:30pm on my way home i witnessesd a strange image.

I was travelling in the car with a friend and as i looked up in the pitch black sky i noticed a flash, like lightening, however it certainly wasnt as it was quite hot and dry that night. It looked like a long piece of copper wire, the image was large and looked orange and very bright. The shape as i said was like wire, sort of jagged and curved. It lasted about three to four seconds and then dissapered. i immediately saw it and so did my my friend and we both couldnt work out what it was.
