|Bright object crossed the sky leaving a shimmering banner like trail while at least one other object followed before disappearing .
I was on my front sidewalk, stargazing with my telescope, when a strange object crossed west to east through the sky. This was unlike anything I've ever seen before. The lead object was traveling at a relatively slow rate of speed and appeared to be emiting a shimmering banner type of trail. At least one other object was behind the trail. Suddenly the objects disappeared (burned up?).
My neighbor and his wife who had just returned home and saw me outside, walked over and asked, "What was that we just saw"? Maybe this was some space junk re-entering earth's atmosphere, but I gotta tell you, this was one of the strangest things I've ever seen.

(Follow-up to previous report
This is a follow-up to my report of 6/26/04. The object sighted turned out to be a Proton-K Auxiliary Motor from a Russian spacecraft launched in 1992 as part of the Cosmos 2224 Mission.
