Location: Paris, KY
Shape: Light
Duration:3-4 seconds
very bright flashing light streaking over Paris KY, disappeared before reaching horizon

At approximately midnight (maybe 15 minutes past?), my neighbor and I went outside to grab some sodas out of her car, and I happened to look up, just admiring the sky. I noticed a small light coming from the west, nearly straight overhead, moving fast. I pointed it out to my neighbor, who also saw it. It traveled east and blinked out before it reached the tree line. The light was bright white, and blinking, but there’s no way an airplane was moving that fast-it literally took only a couple of seconds to cross the sky. There was no engine noise, no sonic boom, just the light.

Weather was partly cloudy, and there was a storm to our south, with lightening that we could see on the horizon. There were fireflies out-however, this was definitely not a firefly, because the color of the light was too white to be a lightening bug (our local fireflies are usually green), and the blinking was too fast. I’m not exactly sure what we saw, so I’m hoping someone else saw it too!
