Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
A cloud like cigar shaped object - moved eastward over our heads and dissipated into as it form more of a cone shape.

In the western sky about 45degrees above the horizon... we saw a "hazy oval" which seemed divided in the middle. (the haze was simular to what you would see from a cloud near a bright moon). It is a cloud-less night. Over the course of an hour, it moved north-east (above our heads). It seemed to dissapate as it formed a conical shape, continuing to disolve and get smaller and lighter (fainter). The point of the cone was seemed to point eastward.
