Shape: Light
Duration:1 second
In an instant I saw a red "glowing" light streak across 2/3 of the entire western skyline, Western sky above Boulder foothills, taking only approx 1 sec. INCREDIBLY FAST. Its trajectory was that of an arc - like a coma, totally smooth, no wobbling. No sound, no recognizable shape - just a glow. The glow from tip to tip was of even intensity - no core that was sharper or brighter. It was not a meteor, - it traveled even faster than what I have perceived meteors to travel. I was and still am dumbfounded by the speed., and have even wondered if I imagined it.

I am a (almost) 51 year female. Until October of last year I was an Asst. Atty General for the State of Colorado. I don't do any drugs. I hadn't ingested any alcohol. I am still confounded by what I saw. I am a level-headed, individual who "weighs the evidence" in any situation. I was driving home from my volunteer shift at Children's Hospital, when I made the observation.
