Duration:2 seconds
My wife and I both saw a very bright blue-white object flying across the sky at an incredible speed.

We live near Dulles airport and often see planes from either Reagan National or Dulles flying overhead, but they fly at a much slower rate of speed than this object, and we can hear them.

This object was not only much, much faster than any aircraft, it was absolutely silent. It flew up and behind cloud cover, and instantly disappeared.

We did not see any glow through the clouds. It could not have been a meteorite/shooting star, as it was arcing up instead of down.

We only saw it for a couple of seconds, but that was long enough for us to know it was not like anything else we have ever seen.
