|At approximately 22:00 hours was passing by living room window facing due west. I noticed an intensely bright object about 45 degrees high that was so luminous it actually threw six light spikes from it. Their was a plane moving underneath opposite direction. Navigation lights noted. I watched this incredibly bright object for about 5 minutes and it was absolutely still. I finally blew it off as Venus or some star. But when I went to look again ten minutes later it was gone, poof. Not sure of what I saw but it was incredibly bright. From visual comparison to plane I would estimate object was nearly orbital and about the size of a pea at arms length. Just a sidenote. That afternoon the skies were absolutely covered in jet trails and military aircraft were seen in area. The trails were even on local tv news.
