Location: Fort Smith, AR
Shape: Light
Duration:<3 seconds
Bright white light moved from SE horizon to WNW horizon in roughly 2-3 seconds.

The sighting was very quick. I was standing in my yard watching the event with Jupiter, Venus, and the moon when from the SE horizon came a bright white light as bright as the north star. It moved all the way from the edge of my view of the horizon, overhead, then to the WNW horizon edge. It looked like a shooting star, but had little-to-no tail. No sound was heard, and for an hour afterwords there were no other sightings of anything unusual.
