Shape: Flash
Duration:4 seconds
Quick flash in the sky

I was driving home from work about 6:30 at night and was stopped at a red light. I noticed a quick whitish-grey flash in the dark sky (all cloudy that night no stars were out). The flash last for about 4 seconds and went from North to South and disappeared into the clouds.

I looked around to see if the driver next to me noticed and I saw the two people in the car point to the sky and were talking to eachother...so I knew I was not the only one that saw it.

I know for sure it was not a plane. This object left a light trail that soon disappeared after the flash. It was too quick to be a plane.
