Location: Montgomery, AL
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright moving light spotted east of Montgomery, AL in early a.m. ~2 hours before sunrise

Very bright relative to normal star brightness spotted in sky ~45 degrees from horizon due east of Montgomery. Light was moving slowly relative to a star appearing near it in the sky. After observing this movement about 10 seconds, the light stopped. Several minutes passed by and the light remained stationary. I figured if I went to my office (from the parking lot where I initially spotted the light) and the light was not there, classifying the light as an 'unidentified' flying object would be justified. I went to my office, looked out the window and only saw the relatively dim star near where the light was, but the bright light was gone. Please contact ((e-address deleted)) to report similar observances. If the UFO appears again during the next couple weeks, I will consider purchasing a telescope/camcorder to make a video for your viewing pleasure.

((NUFORC Note: The ISS was not visible from Montgomery, AL, on October 04, 2004, so that could not have been the cause of the sighting. PD))
