Location: Athens, OH
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Light gets brighter then dims to look like a normal star moving East.

Me and my husband was outside getting stuff out of the vehicle and because there was a meteor shower set to begin at 11:00pm I glanced up at the sky and there was a really bright light suddenly appear from nowhere while I was looking and it got brighter and thinking it was a meteor I told my husband to look.

As we were both watching it got a little bit brighter and then appeared to go back upwards and got dimmer and dimmer then went towards the East and you could barely see it but it was moving very slowly and I watched it slowly creep East until trees blocked out to where I could not see anymore.

It was very beautiful and it was only 10:45pm.

A few minutes later an aircraft appeared in the same spot and seemed to follow in the direction the light went.
