it was a ball of light coming down on us.

my boyfriend and i were outside of our apartment with our telescope looking at the stars, i was sitting down looking up and i said to him do you see that, he said yes i do, we saw what seemed to be a star, then it got brighter and brighter, it looked like a light bulb, it continued to come down all light up, then it just died out and took off in a northerly direction.

((NUFORC Note: Description of the object does not sound consistent with a celestial body, or with an Iridium satellite. We do not know what it was they witnessed. PD))
