Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Bright light over I-80 East at Douglas. The light shot horizontally toward the East leaving a trail of light and disappeared.

My daughter and I were travelling on I-80 East at approximately the Douglas Boulevard exit when we both noticed what we thought was a bright star in the night sky directly in our vision above the freeway. The light was lower than an airplane would normally fly, and then the light shot horizontally away from us at a very high rate of speed heading East leaving a trail of light and disappeared. When the light shot across the sky it resembled a cruise missle you would see on TV in Afghanistan, although at a much faster rate of speed. My daughter and I both gasped at the sight, and then realized we had both seen an extraordinary sight.
