UFO sighting on 7/12/01

I was traveling eastbound on Rt. 24 in Morristown. It was 0515 hrs. The sky was perfectly clear. It was a mix of dark semi light and light. Traveling north bound at approximately 30-35 degrees from the earth was a bright light traveling extremely fast. Additionally., it was perferfectly horizontal to the earth. Behind the light was a trail (vapor?). The object was a size I have never seen before. It would appear to have been over either the Garden State Parkway or the New Jersey Turnpike. These highway systems at thes point are about 5-8 miles apart. At a point the object and the vapor simply disappeared. It was as though someone simply turned off a light switch and a room went dark. I report this now given the news story of sightings of unidentified objects this past Sunday night in New Jersey. Had I not seen this story on the national news this morning, I would hasve dismissed this entirely. I have never witnessed a phenemonon such as this in my life. You may contact me.
