Shape: Light
Duration:05 minutes
I winessed a light traveling from east to west in the lower southern sky of N. E. Ohio

On Friday evening October 17th 2008 while sitting in my backyard hot tub I witnessed a light in the south east sky. For the first minute I could not determine if it was actually moving toward the south west or if it was just a star. After a couple of minutes it became much more visually obvious that it was moving. Within about three minutes it was obviously moving due west across the southern sky and was not blinking, changing size or brightness. I grabbed my binoculars to get a better view but they did not make much difference in seeing what still looked like a star.

I visually followed the object until it was directly south of me and was either behind some trees or no longer visible. This sighting lasted at least five and no longer than ten minutes.
