Location: Middle River, MD
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 second
Small object zoomed below the moon leaving a small white poof and then thin fire trail (for a few seconds)--not a shooting star.

My car was parked in front of my house and the alarm randomly started going off. I went out to move it to a parking lot across the street (thinking perhaps the sensor is getting confused and a fast moving car set it off.)

While coming back to my house, I stopped to admire the moon (it’s ALMOST full.) As I was standing there, something to the bottom right of the moon zoomed a bit, left a small white-ish trail, pulsed/zoomed again and left a looooong, thin fire trail and was GONE. The thin fire trail only lasted for a few seconds. It was a muggy, cloudy night out there tonight. No stars are visible, so I can’t believe it was a shooting star….

I have seen other strange things, but never reported them
