An angular, heat glowing object w/ a tail smoothly streaked in a S.E. path, clearing a mtn. range on 09/13/00 at 24:04.

Looking out from my second story bedroom window, which faces South, an angular (at least 5 one-dimensional sides)streaked smoothly, in a very shallow arc, across the sky in a South-East direction. The "chunk" had a heat glow - bright, clear light blue at the edges deepening to a darker blue towards the body of the object and trailed a hazy, glowing, misty tail of faint blue and cream which was twice the length of the object and shaped almost like a candle flame on it's side. The body looked metallic and somewhat "crinkled" or angular. I did not percieve any portion of it as smooth. The size was approx 1/5 to 1/7 the size of a full Moon. It cleared the mountain range South-East of my city which is about 7 miles away from my home. Also, the tail included what I percieved to be sparks.
