Shape: Unknown
Duration:10-15 seconds
Im not too sure on the time a hour or two after nightfall. So maby 10=11pm. I was in back yard smoking and looking into the south west sky. I didnt see it forum I dont think but i saw what i can only explaine as a white ball of light. It wasnt a plane or a star... It looked more like if you took a dozen stars and put them all together. Thats about the brightness and the size that it was. It moved slowly west about the same speed you would think a airplane to move. Then after about 12-15seconds of moveing it just started to fade away. The fadeing only took about 2-3seconds then it was gone. It didnt fade because it was getting farther away. It went from being the full brightness that i saw from the first second to just fadeing in about 2-3seconds. Then it was gone and nothing happened after. I am in a city whee i can look into the spy for 10mins and watch 15 airplanes fly by. I know what they look like how they sounds. Flashing lights etc. THIS was not a aircraft. This was a light just like a star but many times brighter...That moved west to east about 12-15seconds then just fadeds(not dsapear) it faded from bright to nothing within 2-3seconds. No idea what it was but its like nothing i ever seen befor.
