On 5 Sep 2001, at approx. 2049,A bright white light, that swelled and disappeared, was seen from Parkersburg, WV in the north sky.

At approx. 2049, myself, mother, father, and family friend(who was out of line of sight)was setting outside. I noticed in the north sky a light that starting getting brighter and brighter, as if it was coming closer. The light was a brilliant white. I have never seen any color of light like this. I said an exploitive and my parents turned. My father saw over half of the incident. My mother witnessed it and stated it was an air plane. As she was making that statement, the light began to dim and get smaller at a slow but steady pace. It continued this unitl it loked like it went away from us, seeing the light dim to nothing.
