Summary : Blue light that shot across the sky horizontally.

Under the St. Louis arch on July 4, 1997 right before the fireworks began a strange blue light shot across the sky. It lit up the entire sky. It was a teardrop shape and it disapeared after about 3 seconds. I dont know how many people saw it but there were other reports in nearby towns this weekend and others have video tape of the sightings.
