Location: Cypress, TX
Shape: Other
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Light with trail and a flash in the sky over Cypress, Texas

I was in the Lone Star College-CyFair parking lot facing west (on the south side of the tech building) in my pickup talking on my cell phone. I looked out the window which I had rolled down and observed a light that was long in length side to side traveling in a North-north-west direction.

If you looked at the sun, the object was 45 degrees up to the right of the sun, in the clearing of the clouds. It had like a trail, but it was not a contrail in anyway, then there was a flash and it was totally gone from the sky.

There were neither planes nor jets I could see in the sky at the time, there was moderate cloud cover, but my view was not obscured. I thought jet, but it was way too long to be a jet or conventional aircraft and I could not guess at the altitude, but maybe 60 degrees up and seemed very distant.

I am a former truck driver, current small business owner and college student.
