Anyone else see it? I am in the South, looked like a rocket taking off, heading straight up and leaving an illuminated bright white tail. I figure it was terrestrial in origin but the interesting thing was a plane flew straight through the tail, which means air traffic wasn't controlled around it. Very weird!
I saw it as well. Looked like it was putting out a ton of smoke and then just faded out. I'll look in the papers tomorrow morning and see if there is any information.
Oooo.... aliens? I'm intrigued. Pictures anyone?
any chance it was a meteorite way up in the atmosphere? i've seen big ones before that leave a long smoke trail, sometimes sparkling, before skipping back out into space or burning up. if it was a meteorite, at least it didn't explode like that russian one.
Surprised it's not in the Yunnan News.
Could it have been the Sojusz which arrived from the ISS last night? What time did you see the light?
Not a meteor,unless they travel straight up away from the earth! I am pretty sure it was a rocket launch,if by the government or military it would explain why no news.
