Sighting Reports 2009

Bright Object With Trail Moves NW in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: October 9, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: Lincoln Beach, Oregon (W Coast About 75 Miles Southwest of Portland)

Description: I don't know if this was a star or not. My husband said it was something that was being reflected off a cloud, but I saw no cloud. It was a bright spot, like a star with a trail wider than it's width. It was moving from Southeast to Northwest out over the ocean. When my husband asked me to confirm what I saw, I looked west, and it was clear. I saw nothing (about 10 minutes later). Maybe the light was a satellite? Was there a record of anything last night? (We live across the street from oceanfront with have an unobstructed night sky view to the west.)

Note: This description sounds like a meteor. A meteor fireball was sighted in Portland, Oregon at 8:45 PM on October 9. However, this is 45 minutes earlier than the above sighting so it would not have been the same meteor.
