Location: Palmer, AK
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Light over Palmer, Alaska

I was out on my front porch at 11:45pm and saw what I thought was a star, just above the mountain. Brightest thing I've ever seen at night. I noticed it had slowly moved below the mountain line and kept descending until below the tree line. Traveling slightly sideways while lowering.

Light dimmed and brightened to an unusually bright point. Seemed to be made up of two to three lights in a horizontal arrangement. Estimated distance between 4 to 13 miles from sight point. No sound whatsoever. Recorded video of the object after 5 minutes of viewing.
