Remarksit was a glowing train. it was at least 3 fists long. it was very beautiful and caught me off guard. at first i thought it was a drone or some type of aircraft (toy) as it was bright blue, but then the trail started, it was very wide, almost a full first wide and it blazed across the sky for several long seconds. had i had my wits about me i would have been able to record it, but after i realized what it was i knew by the time i grabbed myphone it may be gone so i just watched in fascination
