Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
As I lay conscious but half asleep with my eyes closed, I perceived an intensely bright bluish light illuminating the entire sky. It was as though lightening had struck. I immediately opened my eyes to see what appeared to be a shooting star, but it was close to the earth, very close and had a tail of lightening. It was decending onto property probably 500 feet south of my house. In a few seconds, the light was extinguished. I had never seen anything like this, especially the portion of lightening attached to this firery missle. I was very alarmed, got up and noticed it was 4:30 A.M. Later in the day, other people on the Hawaiian island of Kauai reported seeing this sight 40 miles south in Kalaheo. I believe I witnessed a meteorite with a tail of bluish electricity.
