Large luminous cloud like object moved slowly across the sky.

Object first appeared as a luminous streak above the horizon. As the object slowly moved north eastward across the sky, the shape became that of a large glowing cloud. Observation through binoculars revealed a definite shape, which the object manitained until it faded from view. The shape was of two crescent shapes, back to back, with a large pointed shape in the center of one crescent.

As the object slowly moved across the sky, it became larger and fainter until it was no longer seen.
