I tried submitting this report last year, but no one would take it seriously. I assure you that this is in no way a hoax.

My friend and I were leaving a detention session at a high school about 30 minutes before this happened. I was waiting to get picked up by my parents (my friend and I were the only ones left waiting to be picked up). I was staring up into the sky, lost in thought, when a light caught my attention. It was a bluish-green light that travelled from one side of the sky to the other in about 10, maybe 12 seconds. It looked like it was surrounded by a kind of haze or aura.

As my eyes tried to focus on it, it disappeared behind a cloud bank and vanished from my sight.

The object seemed to be emitting sparks and left a trail, almost like the haze emitted by jet aircraft flying at a low level. After I saw it, I only had to wait about 3 seconds before I heard a very odd noise, which sounded like a car backfiring, with a whistling noise that followed.

am telling this event to the best of my recollection and testify that is 100% true to the letter.
