Location: Lexington, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
Bright light moves slowly, stops, and all of a sudden shoots off into space.

I have seen this on two consecutive nights. Looking nearly straight up ( I suppose you could say in the ne sky ) my wife and I saw a light. This appeared to be a star at first but was larger. It was between the size of a star and the moon from our vantage point. The object floated gently from left to right, stopped, and within seconds faded out to nothing, as if it were to have shot off into space directly away from earth. I tend to look up at the sky and find the unusual, the only problem is that almost everything I have seen can be explained fairly easily. This...I have no clue. The strange thing is that I saw the exact same thing, in the same part of the sky the night before as well. It acted the same both times.
