Location: Kapahi, HI
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 4 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
under brilliant illumination that was much brighter than any flair I have seen.

I was outside on the stairs calling in the cat. There had been some noises in the yard, branches rustling and someone with a whistle. I went out to tell them to get lost. I shined the lantern around and the cat meowed, so I called him over. We headed back up the stairs and I looked out towards Kealia as habit. Right at the to of the stairs, I am looking at the stars and a really bright object drops out of the sky. The only reaction I had was to yell "wow". My wife was asleep. I traveled from the top of the cloud deck downwards quickly. Not fast like a meteor. No straight line. It "fluttered" back and forth a bit. Still, it was really moving. I would guess 4-6 mile away (just off shore)..very bright burning aluminum. I did not see a flare go up. Just this come down. Waited 10m. for more..went to bed. I seen enough, I just hope they don't stop by.
