Duration:30-45 sec
The intensity and smoothness with which it moved and the fact that it stood perfectly still for so long, unwavering.

While I was watching the meteor shower I followed two Sattelites, one went north and then one south. I was facing north and suddenly a bright light caught my right eye fronm the right side of the Milky way ( I think that is that cloudy apperanced). When I looked directly at it, it grew very large and bright and seemed to be coming directly at me. It grew to be larger than any of the stars (or planets) in the sky, I am certain the "Morning Star" would have been covered completly by it were they aligned. It seemed to stop and hold position for approx. three seconds,Then it made an obvious turn, paralled it's original pathway and grew steadily smaller until it was about the same size as the sattelites seemed and then it turned to the right( my right) and grew smaller until I could no longer see it. At first I thought it might hit me, then, breifly I thought it was an aircraft, then I realized it was too high for the landing lights to be that bright and I heard nothing but the night.

I Still don't know if I wish to believe in UFO's or not, I was awed for the first time in my 54 year life. I still son't know what to think.

It took about ten seconds to return(travel back out of sight.)
