Posted: 8/16/2002
Location: Sullivan, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
bright light fading to moving light

My husband and I first noticed a bright light high in the sky among the stars. It appeared to become quite a bit brighter then it faded very quickly to a moving light (similar to an airplane, except it had no blinking lights). The light was white and the only changes were in the intensity. It didn't appear to move until after the intensity faded. This happened twice in a 15 minute period. There were also 4 meteors during a half-hour period from about 10:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., as well as other aircraft with the usual flashing light.
