Shape: Light
Duration:45 seconds
I went outside to look at Venus and the Crescent Moon and caught a look at a light that appeared to be an airplane. I followed the light from west to east and noticed there were no blinking lights. I thought I saw the light moving a bit chaotic, but the lack of stars to reference it against made it difficult. It wasn't zigzagging, but sort of slowing down and speeding up, slowing down and speeding up. I thought, since my reference wasn't great that it could be an airplane or helicopter, and i just couldn't see the beacons, and as I thought this, it slowly faded away to nothing. The object was simply a light. Again, I thought this could be an aircraft, but the lack of blinking lights made me think. If it continued without fading, I'd assume it were a satellite or the shuttle, but the fact that it disappeared made me question its make up.
