Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Looked like the International Space Station..But was NOT! 3/4 the illumination of ISS

I was looking at the big dipper (N/Ne) and a light came into my vision from the west. It looked just like the ISS but a little dimmer. I watched it travel straight east until my view was blocked by trees in the distance. The even lasted approximately 20-30 seconds.

I then went into the house to check the ISS sighting location for my town. The ISS is visible from my location at 3:39 a.m. tomorrow morning! This light was about 3/4 the illumination of the ISS. It also seemed to be in our atmosphere.
