|Very large and bright low hanging light in the sky, lasted for about 45 minutes before it dissapeared.
It was just after dusk, it was clear and the crescent moon was out as well as other stars. I was on my way home from the store and my daughter,who is 5yrs. old, said she made a wish on the wishing star.
When I looked at the star she was pointing at I noticed that it was not the planet Venus, which was the largest star besides the moon in the sky and in the wrong place, it wasn't a star at all. It was just a very large, very bright light hanging low in the sky. I was driving home about 10 minutes though open fields and in a large valley which you can see the mountains in the distance. I kept it in view as much as I could, it was very low to the ground and varied in its brightness, but I couldn't get a good look at the shape.
As I approached our road, I realized that it was hovering somewhere around my house, so I turned in my lane and when I got back to the house it was over the woods directly behind my house. I got my camera and took a few still pics with the! night vision. I would have taken video but my disc was full.
So I watched it for several more minutes and talked to my husband on the phone outside while watching it and then after we hung up I decided to get back in the car and try to get a better look at it on the next road over, because it was dancing behind the trees. I took my daughter and we rode to the next road over, but it was gone.
I live in a fly through area and we get lots of planes and aircraft, but nothing like this. It was silent and very bright, much brighter and closer to the ground than a star could ever be. Im not sure what it was. I hope someone else saw it too.
