|A bright point-like light appeared in the evening sky (not yet dark enough for most stars to be visible much less satalites). It moved in a straight line across the sky heading west to east , and then sudenly vanished. It was traveling very slowly (slower than most prop planes-less than 200 mph).
It was a small blue ight. I had just steped outside and saw it. At first I thought it was a satalite. But it was too bright as the sky was not that dark. i called my girfriend outside, she saw it too and suggested it might be an airplane. I am in the Air Force and I could tell that it wasn't behaving like a normal prop plane. the single constant light, the percieved altitude (10,000 ft) didn't seem to be typical of the normal aricraft that are present in the area.She agreed that it didn't look like an airplane. She said, "wow, I don't know what that would be." I said that I was going to go down stairs to my apartment and look at it through my roomates binoculars. the object was traveling slowly so I would have enough time. I ran down stairs fumbled with the lock opened the door, grabed the binoculars (35x), and went out on the back deck(the object had traveled over the apartment by now). I could hear my girlfriend discussing the object with her roomate on the deck above me. I looked at the object through the binoculars and it didn't reveal anything more. I saw no craft or airplane as I was half expecting to see. It looked like a star would look under a telescope, just a point of blue light moving across the sky. the poit was much sharper and smaller under the power of the binoculars but that was the only change. I then reached up to the deck above and handed my girlfriend the binoculars and let her look at the object. when the object had traveled most of the length of the skyand was slowly moving away, it suddenly dissapeared. It just faded out and was gone. My girlfriend remarked, "that was weird!" I said, " I think that was a UFO." through out the event the object made no sound as the other aircraft in the area were.
