|Streak in sky changes direction
I was watching the night sky for shooting stars when an object, about 40000 feet in the sky, streaked across the sky from the north and made a sweeping turn to the west. It entered into my view from the edge of the roof of my house. So its appearance was constant, unlike a meteor that generally appears out of nowhere as it enters the earth's atmosphere. This object was within our atmosphere. I did not believe that it was a meteor because meteors generate a straight line as they pass and dissapear. This object changed direction. I was amazed that the speed it was travelling was similar to a meteor. It turned west and dissapeared out of sight. Not sure if anyone else saw this object. The object also generated a small propulsion tail as if it was powered. Maybe someone knows what it was. I find it hard to believe that we have technology to travel at this type of speed. Probably thousands of miles per hour.
