at approxamately 22:10 I was looking in a southeasterly direction and observed a small plane landing at a close-by landing strip, I saw the landing lights come on and proceded to land. 22:11 I looked back in the southeast and saw something with no flashing red or green lights. It looked like a raindrop on it's side with solid red on the top and solid orange on the bottom, it left a streak behind it for about 2-3 seconds, it appeared and disappeared without a sound even though it was traveling high in the sky and horizontal. I then observed a aircraft following behind at a very much slower rate of speed, this aircraft had red and green flashing lights, a conventional aircraft. The observation didn't last very long because of the speed of the flying object. I have lived near an airport for 20 plus years, I have seen satelites traveling in an arch high in the sky, I have seen meteor showers arching downward as they enter the atmosphere, but I have never seen something move horizontal and with no conventional aircraft lights.
