Shape: Light
Duration:6-10 seconds
Bright blue object races across whole sky.

I was driving home from work on Monday night at about 9:35 PM PST. I’m majoring in Astronomy and usually gaze at the stars as I drive home during the dark stretches. On Monday night this was the case. Through the front windshield a BRIGHT blue object raced across the sky from East to West at amazing speeds. Keep in mind I’m familiar with objects in the sky. This object was blue, It took only 6-10 seconds to cover the WHOLE sky, 180 degrees. It was brighter than any star in the sky, It was too slow to be any debris entering the atmosphere, the color also supports this. It was way to fast to be any earth made aircraft of any kind. Its path was direct and its brightness did not fade as it reached the horizon. I have seen many object in the sky including satellites that I have manually tracked with my telescope. This object was absolutely not a satellite. I hope others saw this as well.
