Location: Boise, ID
Shape: Light
Duration:minute
sporadically fast moving bright light too low to be a satellite and to high to be a plane fades into the stars after a minute

I looked up in the sky and noticed a bright light moving rapidly across the sky. For a second I thought it was just a satellite because it was moving at about the same speed, however, it was much lower than satellites fly and the light was brighter. I noticed a plane flying behind it but at a much lower altitude and way slower. It was a solid light not blinking like a plane and it was moving sporadically side to side up and down not drastically but similar to what a plane would look like in turbulent sky's. The light was too high and too bright to be a plane. I followed the light for about 30-40 seconds then it got dimmer and dimmer even though it did not change its altitude or speed than at about the minute mark it just disappeared into the stars. It didn't streak or fade like a shooting star it just slowly vanished like a flash light dying. In conclusion it was definitely not a satellite, or a shooting star or a plane unless it was some super sonic s! ilent jet flying at an astronomical hight and speed in very turbulent sky and slowly dimmed its lights than turned them off all together and was flying in the dark.
