I live just outside of atlantic city new jersey. I got home from work last night at 4 AM. Grabbed a beer and sat on my front step which faces south east. Yes it was my first beer. My new house is in a place where you really get a chance to see more stars than im used to ever seeing, so i actually spend quite a bit of time looking at them. Well roughly 4:25 AM facing south east, coming over my head and following a straight line I see what looks like a ferry fast moving star. It covered a distance of about 8 inches, meaning if i held a ruler out at arms length it would have traveled that distance, instead i used my hands which are about 5 inches wide, and 2 fixed stars to estimate this, in just a split second. blinked out of sight, like someone turned the lights off, blinked back, and continued below the horizon created by trees. Now just to make this clear I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS WAS A UFO. I'm sure it was probably a meteor or a satellite or something verry common. I would just like to know if what i saw was identifiable by name. Knowing my location and the estimated direction of travel. The blink makes me think it was probably a satelite that for a second was at the wrong angle to reflect light in my direction. Is there anyway to check to see if there would be some civilian satelite passing that area at that time?
