Shape: Light
Duration:A few seconds
Brief, bright light--high in the sky.

Around 11:30 p.m., I was walking north in Virginia Beach and, looking up into the Big Dipper, I saw a light very high in the sky that was bright enough to make me say, “Wow!” I was trying to figure out what sort of star it could possibly be when it started moving and the light dimmed. It seemed to be moving irregularly.

It was similar to the way a plane looks when the headlights are aimed at you, but this was so high in the sky, for that to be true, the plane would have had to be descending--and it wasn’t.
