RemarksBright long and wide light with headlight-like, segmented light projections in front of the direction of travel. Possibly multiple smaller, leading objects burning up in front of the largest segment that created a long, relatively wide and connected projection of light throughout the very high night sky. We saw a plane approaching CVG at the same time from North to South and while it's light was much closer, the overall size of what we saw was much higher yet still very bright.
