Duration:5 minutes
We saw a bright light leave the atmosphere and continue into space.

I noticed an unusually bright light traveling rapidly through the upper atmosphere. I pointed it out to my girlfriend and commented it must be an aircraft flying high with a very bright light. The light looked more like a bright star than an actual aircraft light. The craft then suddenly appeared to be in space and the light was very faint and traveled in the same direction at a much slower rate, much like the way a satilite looks. The craft slowed down to a conplete stop for a few moments and then continued on slowly and then stopped again. The craft then held constant for several minutes and slowly disappeared.
