Location: Vancouver, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:10-15 seconds
Bright light moving from south to north then dimming

I was outside smoking when I looked up towards the west and seen a bright light. This light was brighter then any other light in the sky at the time even the moon. I watched for about 10 to 15 seconds to see if I could see any blinking lights like a aircraft would have. During that time I observed it moving at a slow pace from south to north while dimming in brightness. As I had to look down at the ground as I was walking to another position because of a bad ankle all of a second when I looked back at the same area it was gone. I would say it was at a very high altitude traveling a little slower then a plane would travel as far as the dimming it was very bright when I first saw it then by the last time I saw it, it had dimmed to about as bright as a normal star in the city lights. It seems as if the dimming coincided maybe with the fact that it was gaining elevation now that I think about it as it did also get smaller.
