|"Fuzzy" star grows larger and fainter until finally vanishing.
I was working the gate at a fairly high Security facility and looked up at the bright stars that night. Saw one star straight up, at the bright end of the scale that appeared fuzzy. As I watched it, I saw that it was getting bigger, like it was coming toward me, but getting fainter at the same time.
I alerted the other guard who came over and saw the object, which now appeared as a fading grey circular object that continued to grow in size. I looked at the object through a handheld thermal imaging camera but could not see it (Likely due to high altitude). We watched the object until it was probably the size of a dime at arm’s length. By this time, it had moved slightly horizontally (As if drifting), but was still perfectly round.
I alerted our Supervisor, who was now wondering what we were looking at, but the object had become too dim for him to see. The sighting lasted 2 minutes.
