Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Bright star like circular object shoots across the sky at amazing speed

After witnessing several sightings this month I was watching the sky from my backyard for a few minutes before going to bed. Once again I saw something different than I've seen before and something I cannot explain. While looking towad the South East a bright star like object appeared from no where and grew extremly bright then shot across the sky heading Northe West at an amazing speed. It left a trail behind it as it went obver head. It looked almost like a meteor only it was flying straight across the sky instead of travelling downward. It kind of looked like it could be a missle almost since it travelled so fast but it made no sound whatsoever. It lasted about 5-6 seconds before it dissapeared out of site. It was NOT a falling star or a meteor so I am calling it a ufo.
