Shape: Light
Duration:90 seconds
Bright, silent, star-like light moving across the sky, much faster than any jet airplane

I stepped outside at 8:48 PM, Central Time Zone, to have a smoke. It was a clear night and the stars were bright and beautiful. While gazing up at the stars, I noticed a light moving across the sky at an amazing speed.

It was a white light, as bright as the brightest star in the sky, and it was moving in a North/North-Easterly direction, in a straight line. It appeared to be at a very high altitude, and it was moving at least 3 times faster than any jet airplane I have ever witnessed. It took the light about one and a half minutes to move from the South horizon to the North Horizon. It was not a shooting star. It made no sound.

An hour later, at exactly 9:48 PM on the same evening, I witnessed the same kind of light moving along the same path and at the same speed. I quickly pulled out my phone to try to get a video of the event. However, as soon as I began recording, the light began to dim and disappear. The entire recording only lasts 6 seconds, but the object can be seen moving away from a stars position before it disappears.
