Shape: Other
Duration:35 minutes
Meteor, Comet, Craft breakup.

Looked like bright light. Could have been a craft breaking up in the atmosphere. Did resemble a comet or meteor that had broken up in the atmosphere. Just spread out over the sky and faded away over a 35 minute period.

Was surrounded by approximately 6-7 C130 transport planes from Martinsburg WV. Coincidence? They do fly around here a lot but not that many or during a sighting of an anomaly.

((NUFORC Note: Result of earlier missile launch. Please see:
