At appox 12:24am myself and my neighbor witnessed an object that looked like a falling star travel at a high speed across the northwest sky. It never lost altitude or seemed to be falling. No sound was heard. A tail was following the object that continued to travel towards the east out of sight. It seemed to be traveling at a very high speed. It could not have been any aircraft currently manufactured by us at this time. It was a disturbing sight.
