Location: Midland, TX
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Lighted train flies across night sky

At about 20 above the horizon, moving from northwest to southeast, and north of Midland, Texas there appeared to be a string of lights moving rapidly across the sky. It was moving about as fast as a low flying jet would move, but it was much longer than any kind of a jet taking off or landing. It was almost as if a fully lit train was flying through the night sky. At first I thought it was a reflected condensation trail, but then became more luminous as a string of lights, very close together, and in a very straight line and the trail did not extend, meaning the string of lights moved as a unit. It made rapid progress across the sky and it disappeared before I could take a picture of it.
