We were heading to Arizona on I-8 E through the mountains when I saw a bright shining light behind us that seemed to be dragging a flourescent gas. The craft wasn't very distinguishable because the gas it was emitting was so bright. My husband pulled the car over and we got out and both of us first wondered if there was a shuttle re-enterin the atmosphere that we didn't know about. I tried to take pictures but in the excitement i couldn't get it on night mode and so the pictures came out blurry. The gas seemed to spread out almost like a net and was strange how bright white it was. I cannot imagine what it was.
