Shape: Circle
Duration:1 hour+
High altitude white disc observed.

Observed what appeared to be a planet or star in the eastern sky at about 45 degrees above the horizon. At first it seemed stationary, but after observing it for over an hour, it seemed to slowly move to the southeast. The moon was out too, but the object's movement did not follow the arc of the moon. It seemed to grow more distant over time, and eventually became unobservable. I called it to the attention of my friend who was visiting from out of town. We were both astonished by it. It did not flicker, but was a steady white orb for the duration of the observation.
