Strange Streak Across Sky December 7, 2004 Picture located on NASA’s ‘Astronomy Picture of the Day’ December 7, 2004 On the evening of December 6, 2004, about 11:00 p.m., my neighbors and I witness a strange streak that covered the whole sky. It seemed that the streak was located high in the sky stretching from South to North covering the entire sky.

The streak was not a cloud or made by a jet plane. The next day, NASA published a picture on the internet, as stated above. One can see what the streak looked like on the NASA’s website’s picture.

NASA stated several days later that a bug had walked across the camera lens. If one looks at the picture, one can see that the streak starts at one end of the sky and finishes exactly at the horizon.

This streak was not made by a bug. I do not have any idea what the streak was or what it was made of.

I have called NASA and the Miami Transit Planetarium to report it. No comment was made.
