|Odd brightly lit object object observed silently flying in a wavering flight path.west to east in eastern Washington state.
I ran to the truck to grab a manual for my Jeep. When I was returning to the house I saw what I thought to be a very bright shooting star. I immediately noticed that it was moving to slow for a shooting star and it did not change in light intensity, nor did it have the normal streak behind it. I watched the object move from west to east, I know this as I am familiar with the layout of my parents property. I watched this light for several seconds and determined it was not a plane due to fact that the light was not unidirectional, as would be the case if it were a plane or helicopter. I called to my nephew who was inside and asked him if he wanted to see something weird.
We both observed the light/object as it continued towards the east.
After a few moments he ran inside to tell his mom, my sister, to come out and look at what was in the sky. I explained that it was weird because there were no flashing port or starboard lights. The flight speed and altitude was also odd as it seemed to be drifting and did not appear to follow a straight path.
I thought that it could possibly be a satellite but due to its brightness and low elevation have considered otherwise. I doubt that it was a small plane as there was no prop noise. The object continued to the east until it disappeared behind the horizon.
