Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Single bright light appeared to approach and then move off to the south in the sky over Los Anegeles.

Last night while standing on the porch of a friend in North Hollywood, California, I witnessed what appeared to be an unusually bright star in the eastern sky. At first glance I thought it could be a planet but then after a few seconds it got much brighter as if it were moving toward me. And all of a sudden it dimmed to almost unperceivable. At that moment the object looked more like a satellite and then moved off to the south and within 10 seconds it was gone.

After the object was no longer visible, I saw what looked like a high altitude jet flying in the direction of where the original object flew off. It was obviously a jet because it left a con trail.

((NUFORC Note: Possible reflection from the metal skin of a jet aircraft?? Possible flare from Iridium satellite. PD))
