Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 sec
Large star like object , moving with a high rate of speed across the sky.

Object was first sighted in the northwest traveling with great speed on a definite route to southeast. It was lower than a star but higher than a commercial aircraft. It was all white like a bright star, no blinking, no sound, no trail of any kind. There was no change in speed or direction, it appeared to be on a definite flight path which never changed and it was observed until out of sight. There was considerable cloud cover however, due to its brightness, we were able to follow its path even through the clouds. We had expected a meteor shower, but never anything like this.
