Location: Concord, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:4.minutes
I saw a moving light that disappeared into thin air on a clear night.

I was out on my deck having a smoke as I always do after dinner . I was looking up at the stars and I saw it over the top of my house. It was small and I thought it was a plane, I noticed it was moving very slowly, and was very dim . I have seen many planes that fly at high altitudes, but ,this you could tell was very high. I was thinking of maybe a satelite . As I watched this thing it moved at the same rate of speed going from southwest to northeast(slower than a plane ) not taking my eyse off it I banged on the back door to tell my wife to hurry and come outside to see this. She did and saw the light but went back inside. I continued to watch the light and it seemed to speed up, About a minute later it just vanished.The sky was totally clear not a cloud in sight . Did anyone else see what I did ?

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the report is not inconsistent with a sighting of a typical satellite. However, that is only a guess. PD))
