While driving through Arizona My wife and I witnessed a white object in the sky.

It was mid-late December and my family and I were on our way to Ensenada, Mexico for Christmas. We had decided drive pass Flagstaff and take a road that passed through Prescott. The road was filled with curves that we thought would never end. As we approached the bottom of the mountain road I had noticed a white ball or sphere objects that had a trail following behind it. The object was not high enough to be an airplane plus it was bright white with a trail following behind. I knew that the oject was not a falling star because we have seen many of thoughs after living on the plains for 3 years. I had brought this object to my wifes attention so that I could prove to myself that I was not seeing things. My wife did see it and then I proceeded to pull the car over so that we could focus a little bit better on the object. I took my eyes off of the object and focused on pulling the car over, after I had stopped and looked up to locate the object it was gone. I had posted this short story on my web page and I did not come across your page until today and I thought that I would share this with you.
