Location: Bensalem, PA

Duration: 10 seconds once noticed
Characteristics: The object left a trail, The object emitted beams
Moving bright dot, solid steam of light trail then stopped

After parking and stepping out of my car I looked up and saw a noticeably bright star, probably Venus or another planet. This was early night with no stars really visible yet. Flying in view just under and to the right of the star/planet was a moving light dot of similar size a viewed. Flying right to left steady like a plane (which it may have been, I'll get to that). It caught my eye because coming out presumably the back of the craft was solid streams of light that dissipated after not long, but extended up and back I would estimate 10-20 craft/dot lengths. After watching for maybe 10-15 seconds the streams stopped and the craft continued. I would say it appeared close and steady like the ISS which i have seen several times, but seemed faster than I recall the ISS being, so possibly closer. My guess is that this was a plane doing a routine fuel dump. But would the fuel reflect light, the streams were bright white like stars and planes look in the night sky. I hate that I didn't get a video, but did get a picture at least, but a good one.
