I'm not sure of the exact time it happened, but it was dark. I had just stepped outside to smoke a cigarette. I saw a bright light shooting down from the sky toward the ground. It disappeared behind the houses that were in my view. I expected to hear a crash, but there was no sound. It was fast and silent. Shooting star? Not sure. There were several commercial jets flying their usual flight paths higher and slower than this object, so they surely must have seen it. I am curious to see if there will be other reports during the same evening and what they saw.
