ball of light_w/aura shoots across portland/ nitesky....no story at 11:00

I was sitting out back in my yard,around 11:00p.m. looking up ,towards the southern sky,when it happened,out of my right eye I SAW A BALL OF LIGHT,shooting across the sky from west to east ...if the sky were a clock, it came into my view at about 3:00 and shot to about 10:00...what was wierd is that it had a aura around it and it didnt shoot exactly strait across the entire sky,towards the end of its path, it went like a person writing the letter"Z" backwards... and disappeared over the eastern sky.
