Posted: 6/12/2008
Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Steady, silent moving light moving over Northeast Austin, and vanishing.

Spotted movement in the night sky which I thought was a star, but was actually much closer. It was moving steady, and silently across the sky. I pointed it out to my husband and he instantly knew it wasn't a joke. No lights flashing, just bright, steady, and silent. I ran for the binoculars looked through and focused but didn't help enough to see any more detail. I was handing the binoculars to him while we where both looking up and we saw it dim and dim more and then it disappeared.
