Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
My wife and I were in our back yard on Tuesday, February 13, at about 10:00 p.m. We both noticed a white cloud or light which resembled the exhaust from a jet plane across the sky. However, neither my wife nor I had noticed that type of plane exhaust across a night sky. The object remained in the sky for more that 15 minutes and so I decided to take a picture of the streak across the sky. It was to our amazement to see the bright light as the source of the “cloud” phenomenon in the picture I took with my iPhone 7. Neither my wife or I ever saw the bright light with out naked eyes; it was only in the photo that the bright source light appeared. Because we did not notice the source light at the time the photo was taken, it seems strange that it was not visible at the time of the picture was taken.My wife is retired and I am a college professor.
