Posted: 10/10/2011
Location: McKinney, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Bright light appeared in sky, illuminating tree as if it wee a helicopter shining a searchlight. Then a bright white light in the shape of a ball with a trail streaked through the open sky and disappeared. It was too large and close to be a shooting star. Also the bright light shining through the tree made it obvious that the object was close. There was no sound of either the object in the sky or of it colliding to the ground.
