|single light going away
watching sky talking about telescopes when 3 of us noticed a bright light much like a star...the light grew noticiably in intensity then appeared to drop slightly, dim, then began moving away from earth...not left or right but away...probably about a 5-10 degree angle until the light got real dim then could not see any longer....this took about 10 to 15 seconds....this happened around 8pm Oct. 31...there was no trail of light just a dimming moving light.
We have been thinking about this observation for a couple weeks now and we cannot quite understand what we saw...we all agree that the direction it went was not what we would expect....the light remains of interest because we all agree it was quite bright for being as far away as it appeared..remembering how it looked like a bright star then got more intense in light then dimming..The night time conditions were excellent in that it was a crispy clear night and we were somewhat away from the city lights...even the speed at which it moved away was quite impressive given it dimmed and went out of sight...very exciting indeed but not normal..by the way all 3 of us are over 50.....
