Duration: 2 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Roanoke, VA, USA

Shape: Teardrop
Characteristics: Left a trail

At 16:52 under partly cloudy skies I witnessed a luminescent(white hot) teardrop shaped object which appeared in the Notheast and moved rapily Souwestly with no visual change in speed detected. I was out for my evening run and was able to pause to listen for background noise (engine, sonic boom, or chase plane). No sounds or were any other objects noted within 5 minutes of the original sighting. Passenger aircraft did enter field of vision 4 minutes after sighting emerging from southwest and (slowly) turning North in an approach pattern for local airport.

NUFORC Note--Many meteors from the Geminid Meteor Shower were reported on this date. That may explain this sighting.
