Shape: Flash
Duration:8 seconds

My 14 year old son, my 13 year old daughter, and I witnessed a very fast moving object moving in a straight line from directly above to the south-southwest horizon.

We were sitting our hot tub looking up at the stars. The sky was very black. I was showing them where the big dipper was. Then all of sudden we noticed it..

It appeared as a typical passenger jet,.with a beacon blinking about every 2 or 3 seconds. The biggest difference is that it only took about 8 seconds ( 3 or 4 blinks ) for it to move from straight above my head to the horizon.

I’ve seen many meteorites. I’ve never seen one with a consistent blinking light.

In a nutshell, this thing looked like typical jet seen in the night sky. The big difference is that it traversed the sky in about 10 seconds rather than 2 or 3 minutes.

This was definitely something I’ve never seen.
