Shape: Light
Duration: ~10 Min
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
A light that approximated a full moon in appearance above the tops of tress that are approximately 200-300 yards from observation point. Watched light for estimated 10 minutes when it got dimmer and faded away.

As reported to me by my mother. She looked out her back window (east) around 23:30 on 2-26-00, and saw a milky-white light low on the horizon that approximated a full moon. It appeared to be just above the tops of trees that are about 200-300 yards from her observation point. Thinking that it was a reflection, she moved to another window for a different angle of sight, but found the light was still apparent from her new vantage point. She continued to watch the light; it gradually became dimmer and eventually completely faded away. She approximates that the sighting lasted for 10 minutes. She reported a haze around the light, and a milky-white color.
