Location: Hungry Horse, MT
Shape: Light
Duration: 30 seconds
I observed a point of white light, resembling a star, seeming to be high altitude, moving west at a moderate speed for about 30 seconds

I observed an object which resembled a star moving in a westernly direction. I first observed it directly overhead, and then faced west to watch its flight path. It was moving in a straight line at a constant speed. It seemed to be very high altitude and it was moving at a moderate speed. It was a point of white light, and had it been motionless, I would have mistaken it for a star. I observed it on one side of my house for about 30 seconds until the trees in my yard blocked my view. I moved quickly to the back of my house, but I was unable to locate the object again. The sky was very clear except for a few clouds here and there.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and he sounded to be an excellent witness. Satellites almost invariably do not fly to the west. PD))
