Posted: 3/10/2011
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Unknown Object leaving contrail and possible explosion.

Saw what appeared to be a contrail, starting midway up the sky with a flat trajectory, object then made an abrubpt turn and appeared to reverse directions into a cloud bank, then disappeared.

I continued to monitor the "contrail" and it appears as if there was an explosion at the beginning of the contrail as it spread out farther than the balance of the streak.

The contrail remnants could be seen for 10 mins after the incident.
