As I was walking down the sidewalk with my 6 year old son, I stopped to put sunglasses on my son. Just after my son put the sunglasses on he looked up toward the sun and said "ah, now I can see better." Followed by "theres a rocketship daddy". I looked up above us at about a 45 degree angle expecting to see a jet headed towards our local airport. What I actually saw was a shiny orb looking object moving suddenly downward while what looked like smoke was coming off of it. The object then moved upward, zig zag down and then move upward again and disappearing very quickly like it was just clicked off like a light switch.
