Duration:2 sec
White translucent object with a tail moved north to south slower than a shooting star and much faster than any aircraft.

It was around 8:30pm Thursday night February 12,2009. I was standing on my balcony looking up at the sky. I was actually looking at Orion when an object much larger than a shooting star and moving slower than I had ever observed a shooting star streaked north to south across the sky. Im outside a lot and live in a rule community with little light noise. I have observed numerous shooting stars, comets, airplanes etc. This was none of these things. The object left a trail and moved three to four times faster than any high flying air craft I have ever seen. It was white and somewhat translucent.
