|Super fast streak of light
In light of the Monday's fireball, I thought I'd relay this from Sunday night. I was laying in bed at about 11:30pm, looking out the sliding glass door at the stars as I always do before going to sleep. I was about 6 feet from the door which is about 6 feet across. Then suddenly a pinpoint white light streaked across the span of the door so fast that it shocked me. It must have taken in my guess a fifth of a second or less to cross. I live way out in the country and frequently see falling stars, but I have never seen one travel this fast. I don't guess that anyone else could have seen it, but I thought I'd pass it along just the same.
