|Summary : July 4, around 10:30pm. Shooting fireworks w/children in backyard. Instantainous bright blue light in sky caught my eye. As I turned to look, it appeared to be an oval shaped blue glow just sittin there. Then it glowed a soft orange around the outer sphere and shot through a cloud bank, I could still see the bright glow through the hazieness of the cloud . faster than I could react, or say anything to anyone it was gone , just like that, no big production just flat gone! When I turned to my son who was standing next to me, he was already looking up at me. He asked me what the light was and I knew then that I was not seeing any sort of firework or pyrotechnics. It was flying at around the same altituide a commercial airliner would, but I've never seen anything move so quick. And there was NO sound as it shot across the sky .|
