Characteristics: The object left a trail
bright star like light, shoots across sky, changes directions and then vanishes.

A bright light in the sky caught my attention, it appeared to be a star but a little larger and brighter, it proceeded to cross the sky for about 3 seconds at a pace much faster then a plane, but slower than a shooting star, it then quickly changed direction and vanished into the night, leaving a trail of light behind it. I have never seen anything like this.
