What the heck is that in the sky?!? ~ I was driving to work very early Monday morning (about 3:40 a.m.) and the sky was all big with a small half moon. Well all of a sudden I see directly in front of me and over the road a flashing light streak across the sky and I'm thinking "Holey Moley what the heck was that!!?" It reminded me of a firework going across the sky but it was way too high. This was about 3:40 am and I'm thinking it's either space junk re-entering the atmosphere or a meteorite but Wow what an incredible sight!! It was visible and moving fast but a lot slower and lower than a regular shooting star. It was in the sky for 2-4 seconds, the end turned green and then it just disappeared suddenly. I tried to get what it looked like in a digital painting but it was a lot further below the moon, the trail longer and not as wide as the one I did here. "Night flash" (and no I promise I wasn't seeing things LOL! Has anyone else seen anything like this before or have any idea what it could be??
