|object travelling at unimaginable speed crossed our flight path from right to left with a blue trail in the sky
Sometime between 22:30 est. and 23:30 est., I witnessed along with my co-pilot an object crossing the sky in front of our aircraft from right to left at a higher altitude than our own. The shape of the object was very hard to distinguish as the speed of the object was very fast. We were flying at 34,000 ft. north bound over the Atlantic Ocean off the Coast of Florida. Our position was approximately 50 nm south of the airway fix “hanri” on a 210 degree bearing from hanri. The object had what appeared to be three very close blue streaks trailing behind the object. The object appeared at our 3 o’clock position and traveled in front of our aircraft at a much higher altitude to our 9 o’clock position and the distance away was very hard to distinguish as we were at night. The object traveled across the sky and disappeared from sight less than two seconds into its flight. I thought it may be a meteor and its tail but I have never seen such a bright blue light trailing a meteor before and I also did not know what I was seeing or have anything to compare this too. Both pilots are employed at a major airline with very credible reputation. I have never seen an object travel at this speed in my 14 years of experience.
