Location: Bullhead City, AZ
|Smoke trails from object in sky
I was driving down Hwy 95 heading South to go to the store. We have an airport and the planes fly really low over the Bullhead Parkway to land. Well I happen to look up over the airport and noticed a small object in the sky. It looked like it was a far off plane but what I noticed that made me slow down was blackish smoke trailing behind it. My first thought was a small plane in jeopardy and was waiting for it to descend to our airport. But the object instead, flew straight up and disappeared, including the smoke that trailed behind it. I tried to look for it but it was just gone. I couldn't make out any particular shape. All I really saw was a silvery glow of metal. I am wondering if anyone else saw this too.
((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor?? The Perseid Meteor shower was taking place on this date. PD))
