Duration:5 seconds
a star or what looked to be a star moved left and right and shot off into space leaving a trail.

It was around 11pm and i was out star gazing with my brother and my uncle. We came down to graceville to bury our grandfather. And as i always do i took the telescope out into the dark wood around my granpas house to star gaze. As i looked at a great shot jupiter and its moons. I turned the telescope upward because my brother had spotted a bright star in the center of the sky. As i focused toward the star it suddenly moved just a bit. Then as i focused it shot off in a flash. And as we all watched it was gone in less than 5 seconds.
