|Super Bright Object appears over Graham, Washington in the Southwest sky approximately 7:30PM on 1/19/2009
Upon coming home approximately at 7:30PM, I observed an extremely superbright star in the Southwest sky.
The object was not moving. I ran to get my camera and took a picture of it. When I enlarged the picture, it appears to be circular with a greenish-light blue and purple background and appears to have craters and a rough moon-like surface.
Within an hour, the object traveled quickly and disappeared.
I thought perhaps this was a new planet, but when it disappeared, that was not possible.
I called one friend immediately and she looked out to the Southwest and saw the object and took a picture as well. A third person we called later said she saw the object traveling quickly away and disappeared.
