Shape: Light
Duration:60 sec.
this object became visible as i was standing in front of my house facing it to the north and the object was moving in the north-west to south -east direction. it was approx. twice to three time as bright as the current illumination of the moon, which is quite bright tonight. the object was approx. 2000 - 3000 feet above the ground as i was able to see other aircraft at the same time flying quite far above this object.

Also, i was in the u.s. army and have seen aircraft at this altitude and know at what altitude paratroopers jump from, and the object was in this range, as i have jumped from. This object traveled MUCH slower than any aircraft I have ever seen. So slow in fact that I had figured if it were one of ours, it would have stalled.

The object passed over head without a sound. It then dimmed from a bright white light to an ever diminishing nothing. It was gone without a bit of reflection or an sound. The brilliance never changed, just dimmed.
