|Very strange bright cigar shaped object in the southwestern sky.
My 2 daughters and I were driving home from school. On the way up the hill to our home, we saw a very bright elongated light in the south southwest sky. It was about 4:05 pm and dusk was falling. The sky was a clear midnight blue and there were very few clouds.
The unknown object was to the right of the moon and a bright planet (I think venus...). I stopped the car to establish a point of reference and determined that the object did not seem to be moving. It was far in the distance and did not look like anything that I have ever seen before.
We decided to drive down a different road to get another look. As we drove it started to fade away. It eventually became a grey streak in the sky and then completed disappeared. My daughter said "it looks like someone cut a gash in the sky and was shining a light through it." I agree. It even seemed to seal itself and disappear.
Very, very odd!
