Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Light
Duration:2-3hrs
bright stationary light in sky for approx.3hrs

my mother came in and ask me if i had seen the huge bright star at approx. 21:00 hrs. and commented on close it was and how bright it was to the moon. i have studied the skys and been an avid sky watcher my entire life..i told her that by her description it was not a star..i went outside and witnessed it for myself and it was indeed bright and very peculiar. it was stationary but i knew instantly it wasn't a star wasn't a planet. I used the moon as a vantage point for the object and it did altar its stationary spot, but only slightly. I was having a conversation while watching and when i looked away and looked back there was a dark line passing ever so cleverly inbetween the moon and this object, you must understand how close the object appeared to the moon;anything inbetween the two was odd. i ask my sister to come and look and when i looked back again, 2 secs later that dark line had jumped over to fall on the outer side of this bright object..it lasted there for aprrox. 2-3 min. and the dark line was gone. i went inside and came back out 45min. later the object was still there....we were leaving to go downtown twenty min. trip roughly when we got out of the car..there was nothing but the crescent moon in the sky...i mean nothing that even faintly looked like this object...at the nightclub i asked several people if they had seen the object...everyone i ask had indeed seen it...it was just too damn obvious to miss
