Low, BRIGHT white light.

HOLY COW!.. JUST NOW. 18:42 im reporting.. I just saw this thing!. went outside to smoke, ALWAYS look at the stars, have a pair of binocs in the garage. I looked at Cassiopeia, and from behind the evergreen tree, it was ? few degrees east of polaris when i spotted it. it was slow, not a comet, not a meteorite. no tails, and in Earths Atmosphere.. LOW. 1000-2000 ft?? a BRIGHT, NON BLINKING bright white light. It looked like a Star.. floating, heading East, South -East direction, I know Venus..or is it Jupiter in the West?.. on of the two, but this was BRIGHTER than that. .. i ran inside with my lit cigarette, grabbed my crappy camera,.. its ALL black on the screen. I said DAD, theres a UFO floating East! Got back as it was floating east still, but dimmer, Thought my camera was on pic mode, but it was on video mode,.. maybe someone can fiddle my settings,. but it was gone! about 8-10 seconds after i pointed my camera where it was going.. Blinked Away.., grabbed! the binocs, didnt see a thing!.. Lots of planes flying out that way now.

Man, that was heart racing!, sadly my dad cannot coreroborate my story.

My camera still has the video.. if someone wants to email me.. feel free ..maybe you can do some magic...! WOW..God Bless! 1 Corinthians 4:3
