Duration: 5-6 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Bright white ball with tail.

I was in my room which has a balcony off of it and I decided to glance over to look at the stars through the sliding glass door. As soon as I did I noticed the object. At first glance it appeared to be a meteor, but I do not believe it was a meteor.

The object was in the NE part of the sky. It appeared in the sky just above the horizon and was streaking down with a long white trail. It seemed to move much slower than the average meteor. Also, the light and size were incredible. It looked like a bright white sphere. From my vantage point it was about the size of a softball with a long bright white light trail. I have never seen anything like it. It seemed to linger longer than an average meteor in the sky. This object was so bright.

The light coming from the object was such a bright white light than it reminded me of the led xmas light. I'm not sure of the exact time of the sighting, but it was between 1AM and 1:10AM. I'm located on the Playa Vi! sta/Marina del Rey city line. The object was in the North East part of the sky. The object became visible to me in the horizon and looked as though it fell to earth. It lasted about 5-6 seconds.

I would love to know what I saw??? I do know there was a meteor shower recently, but this did NOT look or act like a meteor.
