Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Bright star like light (during daytime), fades while moving and disappears.

This evening my mother and I were on the front patio talking, when very high in the sky I noticed a small, far away, bright light. It looked like a star but extremely bright, yet the sun had not set yet. I was shocked it was so bright.

Then it started to move down, to us it seemed as though it was moving slowly, but it appeared to be quite far away so it could've been quickly. As it moved downward it faded slowly until it completely disappeared.

There were no clouds in the area for it to disappear into. We watched it until it got so dim we could no longer see it.

I yelled for my husband and by the time he came outside it was too dim for him to see. We stayed out there about another 10 minutes. All of a sudden, my husband was yelling, "Holy crap there it is!!!" I looked up in the same spot and sure enough there it was. So extremely bright and fading as it slowly moved downward. It appeared to be very very high in the sky.

I am not sure if this was a UFO or something else, but I came upon this site when searching for other possible similar sightings. I thought I would share my experience in case others had or will have the same! Thanks much!
