    This was posted on another forum, most likely a meteor but were there any
    re-entries in the area at the time?

     just a few minutes ago. It started looking like Haley's comet, but seemed
    to be heading NE. I'm in central Alabama and it was visible at a heading of
    approx. 275 degrees. After about 5 minutes, it disipated into a very large
    cloud-like visual effect. Soon after that, the "cloud" dissappeared
    completely. I watched that particular section of the night sky for a while
    longer, only to see an airliner pass shortly afterward. Like most of the
    guys here, I know aircraft, and this was like nothing I've ever seen.
