Shape: Light
Duration:6 seconds
Higgens Street Bridge - steady fast Bright light going from horizon to horizon.

I saw the sharp point of light as it went north from a 1 to 3 o'clock position vanishing behind a tall building. There were five other people on the Higgens Street bridge. One gentleman had seen the light go from horizon to horizon.

The light maintained its intensity throughout. There was speculation it was an asteroid though it failed to behave like an asteroid. It was a fast, fast, mechanized motion. Also, comets tend to burn up and disintegrate. If this was a satellite it was the brightest, fastest piece of space junk crashing to earth - which might be really dangerous for those on the ground!

We also considered the possibility of a UFO.
