|A bright white light floats and changes direction over Pe Ell Washington.
I was sitting on my girlfriend's porch, waiting for her to come back outside, when I looked up into the sky and saw what I thought was a very bright satellite. I watched it for around 15 seconds as it floated from the top star of the big dipper to the bottom star still believing it was a satellite. But as it reached the bottom, it completely changed direction. It started to go east, instead of north. This is when I was convinced that it wasn't a satellite, as a satellite doesn't change direction or remain as bright as this light had. I stood up and began to watch as it sped up and continued going east. Just then, my girlfriend came back outside and we watched as this bright light floated around the sky and faded into the clouds.
The light was fairly big. If you were to hold out a regular M&M at arms length to the sky...that would be about how big it was. And it was three times as bright as any other star in the sky.
