I wouldn't normally report something like this, but it's the second time I've personally seen something out in this area. Both times it has been a single light moving across the sky. What made this one different is that a friend of mine saw this one with me. This one seemed to make a direct dive to the earth after we first saw it move into our view. Before reaching the tree line it "turned off" (for lack of better words)

We discussed this for at least 45 minutes, concluding that it was maybe 100 yards away, give or take, and that it didn't look like any meteor we'd ever seen. It had a white center, and a blueish glow around it. As it passed clouds, it did light them.

As a side note, the one I saw on my own was in the same area, and had a similar appearance, but looked much closer, seemed to move horizontally, and went behind the trees instead of dissappearing.

I really would hope that someone can either explain this light, or has also seen it.
