|object the size, brightness, and position of Jupiter traveked N. for 10 min. before fading out.
at close to 18:00 on the night of Sunday, Nov. 07, 1999 i stepped outside onto my deck to let the dog out. Upon looking up at Jupiter, (I have been tracking Jupiter since spring) i saw an object the size, brightness, and about 1 to 2 degrees below Jupiter. Jupiter is due East in the sky and at about 35 degrees above the horizon. The object was traveling due North at a constant elevation. I watched the object for 10 minutes until it _faded_ out. The object faded at a position of North-North-East. It took about 10 seconds to fade out. There were no perceived lights on the object. There were at that time 5 aircraft in the sky traveling from East to West all with their running lights blinking. Atmospheric conditions: Clear, moonless, wind less than 5mph, temp 40degF.
