Description: I saw a white ball of light similar to a firework explosion. It had a trace of white line behind it in the pattern of a lightning bolt going east to west in a zigzag pattern. It disappeared in the middle of the night sky. It made no sound. It was not a shooting star. It was too big and we have seen a shooting star before several times.
