I am an amateur in space, and I usually read here to better my understanding.
I was camping Saturday night (July 25, 2015), and while I was looking at the sky I noticed a bright object moving really fast (maybe it looked like a comet), I saw several of them and they were so beautiful.
Is it normal to see several fast objects moving at night? (I saw that 6 times in 2 hours. I don't know what to call them, but they had a tail.)
They were extremely fast, vanished in 1 or 2 seconds maximum. They were as bright as the other stars and planets. As for the angle, they were somehow at top of me, and went somehow straight. It was at night around 2 a.m.. What made them interesting to me is that I saw several of them, about six of them.
There is no specific direction, they appeared from different directions. I mean, if they appeared from north they would go in a straight line to south or east. They got brighter, though I noticed something in one of them--its direction wasn't straight line. It had a really small diversion. I don't know how to explain that. It covered maximum 2 seconds. They didn't reach the horizon. They covered small parts of the sky. There was no change in colors, just bright white. I did notice a dust trail for seconds after they disappeared. I was on a mountain and it was a clear sky.
I was in the Middle East, specifically Lebanon.
