Looking out the window over the hay field a bright light shot across the eastern sky from south to north relatively low on the horizon.

Before going to bed I was looking out a window that looks over our hay field. All the lights were out in the house. I was looking at the stars and just kind of taking in the night before getting in bed. I saw a bright light shoot over my field from south to north above the eastern horizon. It moved extremely fast and was only visible for about one second. The light was very bright and did not have a tail or appear to be a shooting star which I see often and am familiar with. The light appeared to be already in motion when it became visible and went out as fast as it showed up. There wasn’t any “dimming” affect, acceleration or deceleration that I detected …it just shut off. Wife and kids were all in bed asleep. I stood there for a while looking out the window trying to understand what I had just seen. I guess there is a possibility it was a low, fast and bright shooting star but I have never seen anything like it. It appeared to be close in proximity to me, I would guess within 2-3 miles, given how big it appeared, that is only my perception…it could have been a long ways off. I live on a farm and spend a lot of time outside. I’m very familiar with the night sky and what is “normal”…this has me stumped. Thought I’d report just in case anyone else might have had a central Texas sighting that night. I’m curious.
