brightest fastest thing i have ever seen in the sky, around lafayette, la area.

the sky was grey just after sunset. was heading back to Lake Charles from baton rouge after taking a state test. was on the phone with a friend and I saw it. It was so bright and so fast it was unreal.

There was a thin cloud horizontally it was maybe 6" thick in my view but probably quite large in reality. I saw it for about one second going so fast into the cloud and a split second later was on the other side of the cloud and within 2 to 3 seconds later it was out of the atmosphere. I could tell that it wasnt following the curvature of the earth. Instead, it faded into the atmosphere.

I really cannot stress how fast and how bright this thing was.
