Summary : A blue light streaked across the sky at high speed for a couple seconds. It was accompained by a crackling of burning sound.

We were watching a fireworks display in our town when an extremely bright blue light streaked across the sky. It was hard to make out any definate shape due to its speed but it travelled with a tail behind it in a east- west direction. The observers in my immediate party were between the ages of 14-48. They have professions including study, homemaking, and education.
