Duration:1 minute
Bright star-like orb moving in sky.

My mother and I were standing on the back deck around 10:15 pm to 10:20 pm, looking at the sky, when what looked like a bright star appeared. The night was cloudy, so we didn't think it was a star.

I guessed it was an airplane (although it seemed too far down to be one), because of it's slow moving nature, but there were no blinking lights, just one solid bright light. As it moved across the sky, my pet dogs began barking and growling insanely towards the star-like object.

Then, as quickly as it apppeared, it faded away, as if flying out towards space. About 20 to 30 minutes later, after my mother and I went inside, a helicopter flew over the house. I suppose it was following the UFO.
