|Last night about a quarter till 10 pm I stepped out on the back deck for a cigarette. And while I was out there I was just gazing up at the sky (it was a clear night). I saw a rather big white light which I took for a planet or possibly a star at WNW (west, northwest) direction. But then I noticed it was moving into my direction at a rather slow pace, in a straight line. I’d guess maybe 60 to 70 mph. This big white light never flashed or pulsed like you see on airplanes. There were no red or green lights, so I know it wasn’t a plane.
The closer the object got I noticed it wasn’t making any sound. It went over our house and still never heard a sound. I went around to the other side of the house and saw it again moving south east. I kept watching it, then all of a sudden the light went dim really quick and disappeared. It never lit back up. I don’t know what this was, but thought it to be really strange.
