Location: Blue Springs, MO
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 to 4 Seconds
A small bright light traveling very fast almost horizontaly for a few seconds traveling east to west.

I was driving home after work (about 11:30 or so) on I-70 east bound from Kansas City. Looking out of the upper left of the windshield I noticed a very bright, white light streaking west to east. It was almost horizontal through the sky and moved very fast. At first I thought it was an airplane from the light and the path. But it traveled very fast and almost at the end of its visibility the light dimmed quickly then brightened again and traveled a little farther then disappeared. I would have been convinced it was a meteorite except that it had a very flat path (almost horizontal). It was visibile only a few seconds and could have been some natural object, but the one I have ever seen like that.
