Location: Marietta, GA
Shape: Light
Duration:5-8 seconds
Light appears in sky the suddenly flashes brightly before streaking in different direction in night sky

I was taking the trash out, and on my way inside, I was looking at the moon and the stars. There were some clouds but not many.

I then saw what I thought was a dim satellite flying across the sky, and within seconds, it went black, when suddenly a very bright flash appeared, and the object flew off at an incredible rate of speed in a different direction. I have never seen anything like this and I'm hoping by posting this someone else will come forward who saw it also.

I could not tell what shape it was because I could only see what appeared to be one light. It was not flashing which is why I thought it was a satellite. No satellite has ever moved like that though.

I immediately ran inside with goosebumps on my arms and told my wife, and then called my brother to tell him what had just happened. The entire event only lasted a few seconds but I will remember that forever. WOW!! I'm not sure what I saw but it was amazing.
