My husband and I were outside searching for a missing pet, and we noticed a stationary bright light, which appeared to us upon first glance to be an abnormally large star. However, it was wavering slightly in the air but maintaining its locale high above the mountain range.

There was no noise, nothing but a steady shining white light. However, we both stopped to watch this object and pondered what it could be. For several minutes it continued to shine brightly, stationary.

But suddenly it quickly began to move, within 15 seconds it “zoomed” North, disappearing into a faint glimmer in the night sky. We have never seen something like this before.
