Location: South Portland, ME
Shape: Light
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
bright white light darts horizon to horizon in 15 seconds

Bright light that caught the corner of my eye when I exited my hot tub to go inside. My split second perception was that two stars were merging as it was a very clear night. I realized that it was a craft, non blinking, that was moving in a straight line at an incredible speed. It made no noise and it appeared to be very high in the atmosphere. I have witnessed a night time launch of the space shuttle, I have seen meteors galore, and watched satellites go by...but I never saw anything move this quick. It went horizon to horizon in 15 seconds. Maybe I caught the rumored Aurora....I don't know...but the object was a consistent bright white and was moving from south to north. Hope that helps. This seemed like a good place to place my sighting as I didn't know where else to post.
