From front yard of my house, it was perfectly clear skies when I looked straight up and saw a white dot that I almost looked away and dismissed it as mid day star. But then I noticed it was moving in a Northwest direction. A few months ago I watched the space station move across the sky at night over southern california. It resembled that to me as in the size and speed at which it moved. But then I noticed once it got from directly overhead to a slight northwestern direction it seemed to stop and then move in a flat eastern direction slowly for about 2 minutes. If I had to judge distance the movement from the beginning would have been 3 feet in line of sight from southeast to northwest then about 9 inches in line of sight eastern direction before continuing northwest out of my site behind a obstructing tree. I saw several plans flying at high altitude flying near or directly underneath this object and it was obviously way higher than them. Like I said it looked like a mid day star but moving. When it was directly over my head at the beginning of my sighting it seemed to shimmer as if it was reflective. Which in turn would kind of make it look larger and smaller. The last I saw of it, it was getting fainter but as if something that moves away gets smaller. I have always been into ufo sightings but never had what I felt to be a genuine sighting. I would not report something that I did not feel that needed to be genuinely looked into. I am excited to find out if it was something explainable or not. I wish someone else could verify my story.
