bright slow moving light in haze with vapor trail seen Bellaire Ohio in eastern sky 12/16/06 at 07:00 EST

Observed in eastern sky a large bright slow moving object with great luminoscity and as bright as the moon. Appeared to be high in the atmosphere, since the object appeared to be shrouded in fog or haze. Object was able to be observed over hilltop, so was not low on horizon, but probably 30/35 degrees above horizon. A large tail of what appeared to be rocket exhaust plume was seen high rising high into the sky and lower on the horizon to the south east of the object.
