Duration:5 minutes
There was a visible steady white light coming out of a Westerly Direction at about the 10 o'clock position traversing across the sky in a Southeastern Direction with an arcing movement until disappearing beyond the tree line. This white light seemed to be moving at a slower pace than an aircraft of something that high in the sky but ranging the object could not be done accurately a guesstimation between 20000 and 25000 feet is possible.

A few minutes had passed since the object left visible side and then seem to reappear from a southeasterly direction traveling in a Northern Direction. This new path seem to be straight steady and approximately the same height. The light seemed to be a shade dimmer but still remained steady and visible.

The night sky was clear with typical visible stars the temperature was in the low forties. Multiple other aircraft was present in the sky in multiple directions which was verified by a cell phone application to include aircraft identification. The anomaly that was seen was not identified by the applications radar.

The entire event lasted approximately 5 minutes. The unidentified flying lightsource was witnessed by one adult female and one adult male.
