Was in Laramie traveling westbound on US I-80 I witnessed an object in the sky that apeared to be very large and traveling in a south-west to north-east directionwas visible for aproximately 1.25 seconds . Objecy to have a 1inch diameter with a tail apearing to be about 3 inches long in the sky (measuring at arms length) it was a brilliant white with light blue hues. Another person i was traveling with witnessed the same thing just prior to our witnessing of this the other traveler witnessed what apeared to be red with red-orange towards outside which they described as being approximately 4 inches in diameter in the sky it lasted a fraction of a second and no definitive direction was determined another traveler reported having feeling notious at the instant it appeared and nausea stopped after approximately 30 seconds of the event. Shortly after this event myself and another traveler reported having seen a bright flash of white light which appeared to fill the entire sky and no source direction could be identified by either of us
