|Bright green/yellow light traveling nw to se about the speed of passenger jet, but somewhat lower than those.
I observed a bright green/yellow light traveling from northwest to southeast in the sky. The object appeared to travel about the speed of a passenger jet. I observed the object for approximately 15 to 20 seconds, then changed positions so I could see it over the roof of my house. I then observed the object for approximately 5 to 10 more seconds until the object slowly dimmed and faded away. The object did not accelerate away, it's light just dimmed slowly until it couldn't be seen.(dimming process approximately 3 seconds) The object appeared to be slightly lower than other aircraft I observed this night (I had seen some passenger jets later on in the night), but this object was only one solid bright green/yellow light. No blinking lights as with passenger jets. It was a very clear night. The only object in the sky that was brighter was the 1/5 to 1/4 cresent moon in the western sky.
