Duration:2-3 seconds
A CIRCULAR BALL OF LIGHT WITH NO TAIL! MOVING VERY FAST FROM ZENITH TO NORTHERN HORIZON.. TOO FAST FOR PLANE/ NO TAIL

It was definitely on Sunday... either the sept 15th +/- a week (sorry I meant to write it down) I was comming home from an evening service at Bellvue Unity on Sunday night 21:20 pm. Driving do NOrthpast Eastgate and saw a ball of light in the sky that moved as fast as a meteore..but had no Tail at all! It was just a circular ball of light.. it took 2-3 seconds to traverse from top of my windshield towards the Northern Horizon. It was as big as a streetlight 2 blocks away..but was much much brighter and of course moving at tremendious velocity. Again I'm sure this was not a meteore as it had no tail. I've seen a few fireballs that size and they ALWAYS have long glowing tails. Way to fast for any plane ..but no tail like a meteore. Very bright
