Duration:30 sec.
While videoing some boats docked in the marina I happenned to video a yellowish glowing trail, 25 degrees off horizon, far away, during dusk.

There was one object, and it looked like a fireball, possibly a large meteorite entering the atmosphere but it looked like it had the velocity of an jet airplane. No blinking lights, no sound (too far away), just a steady fireball-like trail, off in the horizon, set against a beautiful sunset. It was really quite pretty. I don't know what it was and I couldn't identify it. I taped about 30 seconds of digital video (jvc digital video camera) and have no idea how to get a copy of the video to you (if you're interested). Whatever it is, it's my only experience with seeing something I couldn't identify and therefore I'm very proud of my little video! My guess is that it's a large meteorite and definitely not a plane, but I'm not skilled enough to make that call. Background: I am 31, a computer software engineer, and have a graduate school education.
