Shape: Light
Duration: 5 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
While driving in my jeep with my top down an object in the sky caught me eye so I pulled over to watch it. It looked like an extremely bright shooting star, but it was traveling up at about a 10 degree angle to the horizon and much slower than a meteorite. after about 30 seconds of travel, the tail disappeared. The red round light traveled for about 4 minutes at a very slow speed. I got my camera phone ready to take a pic and the tail started to form again. This time the object took off at an extremely fast speed up and toward the east. I waited for a while to see if there were any more signs of the object but saw nothing else.
