Shape: Flash
Duration:30 sec
bright flash of white light seen over san antonio texas.

I am a 40 year old truck driver from texas i have been driving for 6 years i normally drive at night so i see falling stars and satelites cross the night sky on a daily basis but this night i was standing outside my home in the front yard facing south it was a clear night i often look up at the night sky and see satelites cross the night sky but this object had a bright flash of white light then it shrank to the size of a small star,then it continued on a southwest path for approxmately 10 seconds.My first guess is that it my have been a satelite or the shuttle i have seen the space station cross my night sky it has great speed,this object didn't if i hadn't seen the flash before i would just think i was watching a satelite cross the night sky.Well if anyone can help with suggestions on what this object may have been i would appreciate it greatly.
