On April 4th of this year, I was out around 10:52 pm star gazing and this object sped by above me. It left no trail, was diffuse, and seemed to change shape. The speed of the object was just like a meteor. I had no idea what I just saw so I went in the house and quickly wrote down in detail what I had just witnessed.
The next morning I had forgot about the 1-2 second visual until I read what I had wrote down on the paper. Low and behold, there is an article in my May issue of Astronomy magazine titled "What's that odd meteor" and confirmed to me what I had witnessed the night before.
What an amazing site that meteor was! The only other description I can think of is that it seemed very large in size. Perhaps 1/8th the size of a full moon. It did seem to rotate as well. Amazing what you can recall from only 1 or 2 seconds of a visual.
Just thought I would share this and, ask if others here have witnessed such an object or was lucky enough to image one?
