Duration:60-90 seconds
A bright object in the sky moved towards us then flew away.

During the summer of 1990 while serving in the US Army at Sinai Peninsula, myself and 3 other soldiers witnessed a star-like object moving towards us. It seemed to get brighter and bigger in diameter as it got closer. We were all looking at it and it was as if it were looking at us also. The object then stopped and took of into the sky almost like a reverse shooting star quickly fading over the horizon. We never actually saw the object itself, only the light from it. It appeared to be only a star, but that was the first time I ever saw a star move in that manner. Could somebody please E-mail me and let me know if there is any explanation for what we saw?
