Duration:30 seconds
Bright slow moving object that became brighter during its path across the entire sky.

traveling from west to east i observed what first appeared to be a satellite. however, it was the only object viewable at this time of the night. it also grew significantly brighter as it traveled further towards the eastern horizon. (opposite of what one would expect) at one point it appear to stop and fall. it was during this time it became significantly brighter until it dissappeared. it traveled at a very slow speed and was quiet. i have been a pilot for 3 years and have never observed anything like this.
