Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Large white shinning round blob in the Northern sky, flying very slowly upward, then quickly speeds off.

I was in my back yard, the sky was perfectly clear to the East, North and South. 5 miles to the West the coastal clouds were only beginning to come it. Some stars were beginning to appear in night sky.

A bright light caught the corner of my eye. It was in the North, maybe 2 miles from me, higher and larger than a helicopter could be but lower than any planes would fly in that area. It really just looked like a bright shinning blob. It was moving very slowly upward and away from me. I looked at it at least 20 seconds. Then it flew away FAST heading North and sligthly upward, getting smaller very quickly and finally disappeared.

I really can't explain it. Sometimes you think "gee was that a UFO?" but there is logic that brings on doubt. This one has no logic.
