Bright White Light With Trail Following Behind Over Northeast Philadelphia Pennsylvania

Date: December 25, 2011
Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

I saw a white ball in the sky last night, December 25, 2011 at about 10:00 p.m. I live in the northeast section of Philadelphia. We were driving south and straight ahead of us appeared a very bright white ball with a trail behind it.

From what I saw it lasted about 30 seconds, and appeared to be heading downward, not across the horizon, more of a falling straight down to earth look? It reminded us of a white flare gun, but traveling in the wrong direction and extremely bright.

Way too bright for a falling star. Just curious if there had been any other reports or an explanation for this? Thanks.

I also saw one that matches your description. It was flying westbound over cedar falls, Iowa at 2:30 am. It dissipated shortly after I saw it. But had a tail when it dissipated, reminding me of a flare when it dissipates
