Duration:3 min.
large white light, erratic motion over spokane

The first object appeared about 60 degrees over the horizon above North East spokane(city) It appeared as a very bright white ball of light apporximately 6x the size of the brightest star in the sky. It was first stationary, then moved very slowly south, traveling what I would estimate as 3 degrees. After the first half of that distance the form dimmed to about half brightness, then suddenly disappeared. We also saw one more identical object behaving simmilarly within the next 20 min. It was moving very slowly, and did not appear to be dimming continuously as you would expect a meteorite to do, but more like a dimming of head lights. It moved, stopped, moved in a straight line again, paralell to the horizon, and disappeared.
