Duration:3 seconds
Very Fast moving white chevron shape traveling north to south

Eight of us are sitting around a campfire watching Peseid Meteor showers on Saturday night, August 12, 2017. UFO appeared from the north traveling south in a straight line. Its shape was best describes as a chevron or a flat line with tails like this [. It covered the entire length of the night sky in about 3 seconds.

Four of the eight exclaimed immediately, “Wow, did you see that?” Two of the people who saw it said it zig zagged in the middle of its path and then continued on in a straight line. The other two, myself included, did not notice any deviation from its north to south trajectory.

There was no tail like we were seeing from the larger meteors we saw. Its size was also much larger than any of the meteors. There was no sound.

The color was white with a slight blue tint. The light we saw also appeared to pulse brighter and darker as it traveled across the sky.

My initial thought and reaction was that we were seeing a military spy plane traveling at a high rate of speed, yet after processing it in my brain, the distance and speed it traveled far exceeded anything written about possible USA spy planes i.e. Aurora.
