Location: Colville, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:20-45seconds
Fast moving ball of light with darker core, changed direction.

I first sighted object approx 60 deg above SW horizon. Moving from south due north.

I held out my forefinger and little fingers with thumb holding down middle two. AT arms length, the object traveled that distance in about 3-4 seconds which I measure to be 5.5 inches. I ran up into the house and grabbed the binoculars and out the back door, taking about 5 seconds..I relocated the object and had found that it had changed course a few degrees. Now a few degrees west. It was lined up with the end star of the rim of the Big dipper, I then lost sight of it. The speed with which the object moved was something Im still have trouble with. I know it wasnt a falling star,commet or other naturally occuring Phenom. They dont usually make attitude corrections, nor move that fast. There were no lights of aircraft and no sound. I hope that others saw it,because my coworkers really think Ive lost it NOW.
