I was at work, on a smoke break. I was talking to a co-worker & I was facing east, he was facing west. This bright light caught my attention, I looked up to see a cigar shaped solid bright light there in the sky. Just I was getting ready to tell my co-worker to turn around, it took off in a North direction & disappeared. It all happened in a matter of seconds. My co-worker asked me what was wrong, cause I had a weird look on my face. I asked him to look up at the sky & tell me if there were any clouds or smoke from the factory. He said, NO. I was astonished as to what I had just witnessed & it couldn't have been any type of aircraft or search light.
