Duration:about 4 seconds
very fast yellow dot.

I went outside for a walk because I was bored and couldn't sleep. So I was just standing around in my street with a cigarette for a while. Then some dogs started barking at me to my left. But then as I turned my head to my left I saw a very bright yellow dot departing from the horizon. I'm not sure if it was departing from the ground. It flew my direction untill it was above me (not perfectly right above me or something) and then seemed to fade away into space. This all happened very quick, about 4 seconds. It looked a little bigger than a star. it's speed, color and brightness reminded me a lot of a so called falling star but it lasted too long for being one and didn't leave a trail , wich makes it something worthy to report for me.
