Duration:5 seconds
Blue-ish sphere with white trail seen traveling north to south Sunday 8PM October 29, 2006.

I was standing outside my house. I live under a flight path, so am usually looking up in the sky. Something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye and I happened to look at the roof of our house facing east. About 2 inches (to the naked eye) above my roof traveling north to south in a perfectly straight line was a bluish orb/sphere followed by a trail of white light (about an inch in perspective). It moved quickly - faster than any plane I've seen flying over (in a few seconds it traveled the length of my house and beyond), and was much larger than any of the planes that have passed overhead without also hearing them. This was silent. After a few seconds it faded quickly & disappeared like it had passed into clouds. However, Sunday night was a perfectly clear evening, and I watched for some time afterward to see if I caught it again. I am reporting this because it was truly inexplicable, and unlike anything else I've seen. And I've been going out there every night for the last three years.
