Shape: Light
Duration:2 seconds
On 7/29/00 at around 10:00 pm, I was outside admiring the sky because it was a very clear night. I am in a rural area that is wooded, but I was standing in less wooded location when a bright light caught my eye. I turned to see it, and it appeared to pass behind a big pine tree. I couldn't tell how far away the object was, but it was traveling horizontal to the horizen and low in the sky. It looked to be about the size of a pea and was round, glowing white-blue, and had a tail. It made no noise. It looked like it could be a big meteorite, but I've never seen a meteorite travel in a straight horizontal line. After a few seconds, the light disappeared like it had been turned off.
