|A bright red spaceship like onkect that disappeared after after seeing ignite in flight for about 30 seconds.
My daughter and I were breaking up a pumpkin for our chickens by throwing it up in the air. She paused for a second, pointed to the sky and said, daddy look at that rocket ship. This is something she says often and it’s usually a plane with the vapor trails behind it. I hesitated to look, she said it again so I changed my position to see it through the trees. I saw the “craft” and it didn’t look like the usual plane with trails. It had a look of red to it and I started to think maybe meteor. But it was to controlled and the trails behind it weren’t like a plane but also not like a meteor. I have seen rockets take off from Wallops Island and this was a different coarse, across the sky, south to north about. I then thought with the sunset that maybe it was a reflection on a plane creating the effect. I looked over at the sunset and the two didn’t really line up. I changed my point of view as it was flying with a tree in my yard blocking the view. I ! saw very clearly where it would re appear from the branches but it never did. There was a very clear sky and no other obstructions near by. We could not find it. Definitely odd. I wish I took a picture but it was gone by the time I got to this realization. There must have been others that saw this.
