Location: Arthur, NE
Shape: Light
Duration:25 seconds
Very bright light 4x size of Mars.

I was returning to my house after having shut chicken house up for the night when i saw this large (approx. 4x the size of Mars) bright steady light moving south easterly from the north and as it neared the proximity of the full moon, it faded from sight. I'm guessing I observed it for approximately 20-25 seconds as I stood still and watched to see if it became visable again. It didn't. I returned to the house to write down the sighting and went back outside to observe the moon and Mars as it's a gorgeous quiet night. The object was approximately 25-30 degrees from the eastern horizon.
