Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Spotted object overhead, then watched it shoot across the sky, coming from the northwest and traveling easterly.

Sitting in my truck waiting to go deer hunting I was watching a meteor shower and all of the sudden an intense flash of light caught my at- tention. The object traveled a short distance giving off an orange trail . It shot across the top of my truck never making a sound. I jumped out trying to follow it with my eyes. It made about a 45 degree turn, emitted another intense flash of light and disappeared. I couldn't make out any particular color or shape because it was traveling too fast. Then I began watching the trail. You could see it move with the wind until it also disappeared.
