Quote:It looks like it may be an iridium flare. Go ahead and google it. It is a line of satellites that reflects a variable amount of light according to the angle at which some part of the satellite reflects light. They can get very bright.

Quote:My vote would be Bird and not bug. The composite with the three bulges in the middle to me says.....glide..flap,flap,flap......glideBugs can't glide, the must constantly beat their wings be they a moth, beetle, dragonfly etc.
Quote:It couldn't have been anything in Space...at least nothing of our origin. If you look at the left side of the image above, it appears to have a little bit of a bent profile...as if it changed direction. The momentum that a satellite would have would require a lot of "push" to change its direction. Also, I'm curious about the level of the Horizon from the craft's origin, or ending point, in the lower right hand of the image. If it's below the tree-line, or cloud-line, as the darker region suggests, I'm guessing it may not be at a very high altitude either, just above your property or something...then again, I wasn't there to witness it, and your eyes would probably suggest something different.Clear skies,Brandon Doyle
