U.F.O disguised as a satellite sneaks through the night sky!

At 21:19 hours, a single small white light viewed in the southern portion of the sky, traveled from the N.W. towards the S.E. portion of the sky at elevation plus thirty degrees from the right of MARS maintaining 30 degrees until reaching due south and then slowly fading out,like a lantern out of fuel. This lasted for about one minute. The sky was clear with calm winds.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the witness observed, but satellites do fade from view as they course to the east. PD))
