остров Миконос
Greece

There was one object that looked like a fireball, possibly a large meteorite entering the atmosphere, but it looked like it had the speed of a jet plane. No flashing lights, no sound (too far away), just a steady trail, like a fireball, on the horizon against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset. 

It was really beautiful. I didn't know what it was, and I couldn't identify it. I've taped about 30 seconds of digital video (a JVC digital video camera) and have no idea how to get you a copy of the video (if you're interested). 

Be that as it may, this is my only experience of seeing something I couldn't identify, and so I'm very proud of my little video! I'm guessing it's a big meteorite, not an airplane, but I don't have enough skills to do that. 

Background: I am 31 years old, I am a software engineer, I have a higher education.

Summary:  There was one object, and it looked like a fireball, possibly a large meteorite entering the atmosphere but it looked like it had the velocity of an jet airplane. No blinking lights, no sound (too far away), just a steady fireball-like trail, off in the horizon, set against a beautiful sunset. It was really quite pretty. I don’t know what it was and I couldn’t identify it. I taped about 30 seconds of digital video (jvc digital video camera) and have no idea how to get a copy of the video to you (if you’re interested). Whatever it is, it’s my only experience with seeing something I couldn’t identify and therefore I’m very proud of my little video! My guess is that it’s a large meteorite and definitely not a plane, but I’m not skilled enough to make that call. Background: I am 31, a computer software engineer, and have a graduate school education.
