Posted: 8/2/2016
Location: St. George, UT
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: The object left a trail
A trail of burning light flew just above the southeastern horizon tonight.

There was a large/long trail of fire in the sky just over the top of the mountains. It appeared to be coming closer to the ground and then disappeared behind the horizon/buildings/mountains. It also appeared to be burning and heading southeast. I heard later that some people on Scipio, Utah heard a loud crash shortly after seeing it.
