Date of Sighting: February 2, 2009
Time of Sighting: 8 to 8:45 PM CST
Location of Sighting: Baytown, Texas (See Map)

Description: On February 2 from 8:00 to 8:45 PM I set my camera up to take pictures of the lightning storm (35 mm digital, open shutter on tripod). I just kept snapping). Notice that the light moves as fast as the lightning leaving a ghost trail. An airplane could not leave a ghost trail unless I moved the camera, but obviously I didn't move the camera otherwise the lightning would have a ghost trail as well. Also I never saw this object and was not aware of it until later in the night when I checked the photos. What is really cool is when I use image ready to create a moving photo out of all 20 pictures.

Note: The witness's photos look interesting, but given the slow shutter speed (open shutter) I believe that the red and white lights are aircraft lights. Wing lights on regular aircraft are colored red and green, while fuselage and landing gear lights are white. These lights also flash on and off.
