Duration:Seconds
Bright blue fireball of unusual size and distance; possible investigation.

I was nearing home, paying no particular attention to the sky, when suddenly the interior of my car lit up slightly from a bright light in the sky. I could not have missed it, as it was an extremely bright (almost white) blue light, that I took to be flames similar to something entering the atmosphere. However, this was many times larger than any comet, meteors, or such than I had seen before, and the object appeared very close. It lit up at a low altitude, from what I could see, and went out just one or two seconds later. The sight sent a chill down my spine. I was surprised there was nothing on the news and thought nothing of it, but last night and tonight I have seen planes flying in formation, low to the ground, in that vicinity. I have never seen them around before, so I figured that maybe there was something to it. For a good description, I would say it looked like a bright blue comet, traveling from northish to south.
