Location: Abilene, TX
Shape: Unknown
Duration: few seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Was lights in the sky over Abilene

We were driving East leaving Abilene and saw a bright stationary light that did not appear to be moving. We thought it might be a helicopter or tower of some sort, but as we got closer the bright light became 3 lights, then one blinking light. As we drove past, there were no lights on the back side of whatever it was. Then the light was back, then gone again.

A few minutes later the passenger of the car saw what appeared to be a bright meteor streak across the sky, but then as the glow “burned out” the object moved 90 degrees from its previous path and disappeared.
