Location: Philadelphia, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Flash of light falls from sky and disappears when it hits the ground.

Walking home from dinner and drinks w/ friends at a local restaurant. Met my roommate before leaving campus to head back to our apartment together instead of alone as it was getting late. Walking back with my roommate, I saw a streak of light, that I thought was a helicopter crashing to the ground.

I grabbed my roommate's arm and screamed to make sure she saw it, and she agreed that she also had. I had a drink with dinner and wanted to make sure I wasn't just seeing things, since she was totally sober, I knew what we had seen was real.

As we crossed the street to get closer to where the object had "crash landed" and there was nothing in sight. On the object, there was a bright white light, that was streaked and almost had a tail, with a duller blue light at the end of the tail. It had a similar shape to a stroke of a paint brush or something like that. There was only one, but it was clear that it disappeared by the time it hit or got close to the ground.
