Duration:2 seconds
Unknown length of time of light moving at increbile speed and not a shooting star.

I was traveling on 40 east, about exit 416 in North Carolina, and the moon was at 11 o'clock to my point of view and all of a sudden a light came from behind me the origin was not known because all that was seen was through my front winsheild. It came from behing me and traveling east in the direction I was going. It was about 12 o'clock from my point of view exactly. This thing started at the top and ran along down the atmosphere until it looked like it had turned straight away from the earth out towards space. It was unique and was not a shooting star, this object was bright blue and about twice the size of the brightest star and more intense than the brightest star. Shooting stars are red!!! And does not last this long and travel that far. It also was moving at an incredible speed. As fast as you taking your arm and pointing it at the horizon and move stragiht across the sky to the opposite horizon, taking about one second to completely move your arm. It did not have a tail but only a light trail that my eyes had to keep up with it. I was a skeptic and still am in some cases, but I have never seen a shooting star do this.
