Location: Durham, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:30 SECONDS
Saw a light the size and color of the moon, but descending quickly.

I woke up at 2:30 a.m. EST and could not sleep. I was laying in bed for some time completely awake when I looked out my window when a light appeared on a cloudy night. At first I thought it was just the moon shining, but the object was moving. I could see the white light object through the trees and it was descending downwards slowly. I kept my eyes on it for about 30 seconds and then it went below the tree line. I could not tell if this object was very far away or right beyond the trees, and when it went below the treeline and I could no longer see it, I did not hear any crashing sounds or any sound at all and it never reappeared.
