This was the longest I've ever seen anything shoot across the sky before. I saw two things in one night (both reported here - the other was a green fireball about a half an hour away from this sighting while I was picking my daughter up from dance). This I saw as I was turning into our street coming home - it streaked across the sky very fast, seemed much lower to earth and moving faster than any meteor I've previously seen and lasted at least 7 seconds. It was different than any other "shooting star" I've seen during meteor showers in the past. Very cool!
