Sept. 2012, cloudy night, went out on my deck to smoke, the bright light caught my eye, a glowing "bar" or edge of something. in seconds it took off leaving a light trail that lasted a second or two. No sound at all.I kept questioning what I saw. Everyone I mentioned it to just laughed. I know what I saw. The light trail was not a single line. That's why I thought it might have some dimension to it that wasn't visible because the sky was so overcast. It shot off over my row of townhomes without a soundin a north/northeast direction.
