Shape: Light
Duration: 2 seconds
Bright light ball seen over Ballard extraordinary speed.

I was in my room looking out of the window northwards when I saw a very bright (yellowish gold) round object (bigger than a star but about an eighth the size of the moon) traveling in front of the clouds shoot from the west at an upwards angle towards the east and disappear (not behind the clouds from what I saw).

It was too fast for any commercial aircraft and was certainly not Venus. It is possible that it was a meteor, but itís angle and trajectory were wrong. Also it had no tail.

This took place around 8:45 to 9:00 pm.
