|Object appeared to be a star for 30 minutes then moved.
My sighting occurred one morning in mid-September 2016. I’ve been so bus, I keep putting off writing this, but realize I should still make the report.
I live about 30 minutes west of an air force base. I know commercial and private air craft have blinking lights, so I discount those. I occasionally see lights that don’t blink but I assume military aircraft aren't required to have blinking lights? So I discount those unless an extreme maneuver or other highly strange activity is noted. Therefore, the only other report I ever made was 06/2015 about a bright flash just after day break that appeared from nowhere and then vanished.
For this report , as most days, I woke up early and had coffee on my patio which faces east. I was on my patio about 430 am and star gazing as usual. Nothing strange or eventful, plenty of stars out including 4 bright ones that were 10 degrees south east of straight up.
About 5 am, movement caught my eye, What I thought was one of the stars began to move at a medium pace and crossed the sky traveling south east to north west and was out of sight in about 90 seconds. It was one of the 4 brighter stars I noted when I first sat down and seemed to be same height as the other 3 stars. It had been motionless about 30 minutes.
