This is a sketch of the place of the sighting:
and this graphic illustrates the motion: Speed vs. time:
This is the first image. It lights in the middle of the sky, like an old fashioned goose-neck lamp. It appears above the fašade of the rear building, some meters above (perhaps 5) and says fixed for a fraction of second.
Here it has already moved. The trail is appearing.
Now it is already in motion, accelerating. The ellipse looks at nacked eye like a nozzle from which comes out a trail but its impossible to the witness to precise which nuances suggest such impression (metallic cavity).
Now it is in full motion. The queue dissipates progressively, fading from white to black. Only grey shades without stepping. No variation in vertical. The white zones of the trail show the same white brilliant, with no difference in tonality.
Well, I forgot a small detail: in fact the whole thing starts one second earlier in a very bland way: what I saw first was a shooting star falling from the upper right corner of the urban landscape shown in the previous page to a position pretty close to where the ellipse ignited, less than one second after the line of the shooting star disappeared. I always thought that both things happened in succesion by a chance, but do not discard the possibility of being part of one unique event. More ... in spanish.

Technical realization: The animation has been generated with a Basic program which builds the frames and drives external programs to capture the screen, format conversion, clipping and assembly. These external programs are "freeware" and have downloaded from the Net. They are: Capture it! by Henrique Avila Vianna to grab the screen. Some tricks are required to invoke it from Basic. Cap2gif by Oliver Fromme to convert to gif format. Both are found in the package captur22.zip. To clip the gifs around the area of interest have used gifclip by Gershon Elber, from his packages giflex.zip and giflib.zip. To assemble the hundreds of frames have found the useful multigif, by Andy Wardley. However, the final palette and the first delay had to patch in hex, because the result was not right. (perhaps happened before) The pictures from photo have been taken with ScanJet from HP using the included software from Visioneer.
