Yeah it was about that. 60 or 70 degrees from what I can remember, and due to the location wouldn't have been any kind of vehicle.So you think its altitude from the horizon was about 60 degrees or so?
[That would eliminate a motorcycle light.]
The lack of noticeable color makes me think it wasn't a meteoroid coming toward you, but I wouldn't rule it out.
Was Venus is the Western or Eastern sky? [Meteoroids are noticeably brighter when coming from the West due to Earths orbital speed and rotation rate. The altitude is important to this extra luminosity.]
I wouldn't rule out a flare as not all flares are the same. A plane is also a somewhat reasonable explanation, especially if an air strip is nearby.
I honestly couldn't tell you, haha. If I did notice Venus that night I soon forgot all about it once I saw this thing. That's interesting though.
We do sometimes get military aircraft flying over, but they're quite low and noisy and hard to miss. The closest air strip is about 15 or so miles away but I'm not sure if it even gets used anymore. I didn't notice any planes that could have dropped any flares and they're usually easy to spot as I live in the country with very little light pollution
