Shape: Light
Duration:10 sec.
bright light became much larger

I stepped out the back of the house to call the cat. I heard a jet pass and when I looked up I thought I was looking at a star to the north of the airplane that had just passed. It suddenely became about 20 times larger than it first appeared in a matter of a few seconds, was extremely bright like an auto headlight. It then moved off to the NE away from me and simply faded out. I could not see any shape other than a round bright light.

((NUFORC Note: Probably Iridium satellite. PD))
