Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail
Very bright light moved extremely quickly across the sky. Seen again within a few seconds going opposite direction.

I was driving into Mt. Airy with another passenger in the car, all of a sudden a very large bright flash of light moved quickly (about 1 second) across the sky from right to left diagonally and then disappear. A few seconds passed and the passenger in the car saw another bright light move diagonally from left to right and then disappear again. This also took place within a second. The light seen was bigger than a car headlight and much brighter. The Verizon tower was down all day long and no one from Verizon had any service, the weather was also noticeably different for this time of year.
