|White light appeared as a star, just dimmed out.
I am a police officer with 24 years experience and also an avaition enthusiast. On 5/28/04 at 2244 hours, I was leaving my residence for the 11x7 shift. As I approached my vehicle I looked up at the sky to see what kind of a night (weatherwise) I was in for. Clouds were "broken" at 2400 and the temp. was 59 degrees. As I looked up at the moon in the west, I noticed there was a planet (which one?) at the moons 5 o'clock, and two stars all more or less in a direct line. Then I noticed the middle "star" was moving north at a fairly high speed.
When I first saw it, it was just slightly dimmer than the planet and brighter than the closest star. As the unknown continued north, it grew dimmer and dimmer at a steady rate until it just went out all together. There were no navigation lights visable after the white light went out, there was no sound either.
