Duration:6 seconds
I took my dog outside and looked to the North sky and saw a very bright light. It looked like how a planet would look when they are at their closest. It stood out significantly from the other visible stars. A few seconds later, a halo appeared as it took off. It went out of sight within a few seconds. It flew straight up North about 45 degrees. I went back inside to tell my wife.
