Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
Thought it was the North Star. Same brightness, color and size. Moved east to north in the NE sky about 60 deg. above the horizon.

Object resembled the same size, color, and brightness as the North Star. About 60 deg. above the North East horizon. Object moved East to North at a slow pace. Like that of a high flying aircraft. It then appeared to ascend at a very high speed until the brightness diminished and then it disapeared. The sky was clear. I've seen many a meteor as well as the space shuttle. I know it was neither nor an airplane.. I have 20/20 vision. I am the only one who saw this object. My belief in UFO's has been neutral. I had to see one to believe in their existance..
