|bright white light traveling from west to east that suddenly disappeared.
Right as we were stepping out of the restaurant in Progress Ridge mall, one of the kids noticed a big bright light traveling from west to east that was directly over us. He called it out as a UFO. As we looked up, I agreed with him that we weren't looking at an airplane. There was a plane flying south that was near it. It gave us an idea of how large the object was and how fast it was moving. A bit larger than the small passenger jet that was flying south. I estimate it at about 3000 feet. Looked to be flying at about the same speed as the jet. We noticed that it was moving away from us and that it had no sound and the bright light was completely white. Like the north star. In fact, it resembled a bright star in many ways. A friend made the comment that the light could probably be seen from 365 degrees. It wasn't a directional light. We compared it to the small jet and it was clear that it was flying slightly higher but was much brighter. It also d! idn't have any flashing lights. As we commented on the differences between the plane and the object, the object disappeared completely! It was insane and proved to us that we weren't seeing an airplane or helicopter fly by. The light went dim for about a second and then was gone. We were all very impressed and excited with what we had just seen. There were 12 people in our group and all witnessed it.
