|Brilliant flash of light, possibly very small meteorite
It was a brilliant flash of light that came down quickly from the north and headed south towards the ground. It went out of sight very quickly as some trees blocked our sight of it; or else it just burned out or disappeared. We were just driving home and it cut across the sky right in front of us.
We were very close to it and our best guess is that it was a very small meteorite. There was no sound and we couldn't see where it hit. However, there was a lighter patch of sky, a slight glow, in the direction where the object appeared to originate. That lighter patch of sky hung around until we came inside the house so I don't know for how long.
