Shape: Fireball
Duration:10-30 seconds
Lawndale, CA bright fireball-like object flashed across the sky going in a northwesterly direction, lasting approximately 10-30 second

At approximately 9:43p, this evening (09/27/13), as I was sitting in my backyard patio and watching the sky, I saw a flash (?), with sparkling tail, crossing the sky in a northwesterly direction. I heard no sound with its’ flight. (I had seen a similar flash on 6/28/13, but it had a w-h-h-h-sh sound – which I never reported, expecting to see something in the news. But, I didn’t.) The flight I saw lasted approximately 10-30 seconds, before disappearing from my sight.

It was much larger than the stars, that I watch, but much smaller than the moon (but as bright).

It sort of had a fish or fireball shape, was bright white, sparkling and very fast. Also, the tail seemed to be flashing or dropping off, but not getting any smaller, to my naked eye.
