Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
Looked like a star... only moving quickly across the sky.

My wife and I along with our children were outside watching the meteor shower when we saw a star that seemed like it was flying. It was a steady white light that looked just like an average star. We first saw it directly overhead a little to the north, it moved across the most of the dome of the sky (in about 20 seconds) in a straight line until it was out of sight (it disappeared at about 30 degrees above the eastern horizon. There were also some unrelated jet lights in the sky at the same time and the unidentified light seemed to be moving about twice as fast and the jet.
