My husband and i were on our back deck star watching and letting our dog out one last time for the night. we noticed a light in the sky that at first we assumed to be an airplane. it was slowly blinking red (but in retrospect didn’t have the strobe of an airliner which we actually saw about 10 minutes later) and traveling west, like from columbia, towards the east. i asked my husband to use his flight identifier app to determine what aircraft it was and which route it was flying. he replied that he didn’t have his cell phone on him. we continued watching it for another second or so and then we’re both amazed to see what we thought was a shooting star in the same vicinity as where we last saw the light. only this “shooting star” left a very short trail in the sky (about an inch and a half in the sky, from our perspective), and it was traveling in a perpendicular path — south — to that which the “aircraft” was flying. after we oooohed and awwwwed that we had both witnessed the same shooting star, i realized we could no longer see the blinking light of the aircraft. my husband ran inside the house and got his phone, pulling up the flight tracker app only to realize that there were no commercial aircraft in our airspace at that time. i thought the whole sighting was very cool, because i’m a believer, but my husband, who is very skeptical about the existence of ufo’s, was left very shaken by the incident.
