Duration:1 second
Very fast Oblong crescent shaped object streaking through sky above Long Beach/Seal Beach, CA

Just saw something very large streak across the sky in my back yard at approx. 2:14-2:15 AM. Not a distant object like a shooting star or comet. Definitely lower atmosphere, larger than any commercial or military plane (c-17), No sound, very (very very very) fast, oblong crescent shaped light like a fireball travelling SouthEast.

Note, there are no commercial craft flying that altitude above Long Beach, CA after 10pm. Also, in opposite direction of Long Beach Airports landing approach.
