Very fast horizontal, low-flying, silent light.

I live 8 miles north of Shelton, Washington.

Tonight, 12/13/2015, at 11:00 P.M., while standing on the front porch of our home. I witnessed a very bright light in the sky. It was going at a very high rate of speed, from the southeast to the northwest. It almost appeared to be like a headlight. There was absolutely no sound. It seemed to me to be traveling at about 500 to 700 feet above the ground. All I saw was the light. It must have been going at least 500 m.p.h. As far as it was above the ground it appeared to be half again the size of an automobile headlight.

It seems silly to me, to report this, but I have never seen anything like this before.

At first I thought maybe a star or meteorite, but it was absolutely horizontal. Just the one lone light. No other lights like would be on a winged aircraft. I said to myself “what the hell was that?” Maybe I’m losing it.

I am a 68 year old married woman. My husband and I are both retired.

I have completed some college. I’m just an average person going by the rules living my life. No history of mental illness or police record. Just standing on my porch having a cigarette. Which by the way I do every night. Again I have never seen anything like this before.
