Luminous line seen in New Jersey sky.

I am unsure if this qualifies as an unidentified "object", however I did see a strange phenomena in the sky. At approximately 8:15pm on 09-09-13 I saw what I can best describe as a luminous line in the night sky. It was as far as I can tell a perfectly straight line, which from my distance must have been extremely long (mile?). It appeared to be virtually motionless despite changing cloud currents near it.

Around 8:45pm it began to fade and slowly became obscured by cloud cover.

At the onset of the event I called my mom who also confirmed seeing it.

I attempted to take a photo of it with my cellphone and digital camera.
