Duration:3 to 4 sec
Like a hot ember emitting sparks while leaving a long trail like a shooting star.

I went to the patio door to see what my dog was barking at. As I looked out side I saw a trail of light go over my roof top, much like that of a shooting star only it extended back beyond the rooftop so that I could not see the back end. The object was heading in a northerly direction, seemingly straight away over my right shoulder. It reminded me of a glowing ember emitting sparks until it disappeared much like an ember burning out. I can't guess how high, though it was below the clouds and I had a sense that it was closer to the rooftop then to the clouds. I also could not detect any noise though the TV was playing in the background.
