Shape: Light
Duration:1 second
Weird light shoots horizontally across sky around interstate I-10 headed east five minutes past Michoud exit before Irish bayou

Was driving east on I-10 interstate when both my wife and I noticed a light shoot across the sky headed east. My wife said it was white light whereas I thought I saw a blue light. But both of us saw the same light shoot across the sky although we could not agree on color. We were headed west just past the Nichols exit about 5 minutes traveling about 65 mph. Light disappeared just as quick as it appeared. Possible shooting star bc it shot horizontally. Was not a flare because didn't have upward or downward arc. Slightly foggy night but bright enough that both of us saw same light.
