At about 3:30 am, i was sitting in a chair in front of my house. i had been scanning the night sky watching for shooting stars. i thought the object was a light from the ground. however it moved through the sky much further and faster then any ground based light i'd every seen in the night sky. i noticed an oval snapped object about 20 degrees up in the eastern sky. i watched as the object, which looked like a misty red tear drop, raced across from the east to the south east at a high rate of speed. it cleared a distance it takes most jet liners 10-15 seconds to cross. it had no other markings or lights, just looked like a misty red oval moving at a high rate of speed through the sky. it continued to the south east very quickly and was gone.
