Bright light.

I've been an aerospace machinist for 19 years now.

I work for a very big aerospace company and I am very aware of many type of aircraft.

At 9:19 on Saturday night I saw a light flying in a north direction.

It was a bright light with a slow movement, as I noticed it, it started to slowly dim.

It was not a meteor, I've seen lots of meteors and this was too slow to be a meteor.

It was not a plane, as it did not have any flashing lights, nor was it a satellite, since it dimmed.

It was a clear night without a cloud in the sky.

It seemed as if it knew I was watching it and that's when it began to dim.
