Location: Wilderness State Park, MI
Shape: Light
Duration: 1-2 min
While sitting on the beach of lake michigan (looking west) we saw a light moving slowly from the horizon in a straight line towards 12:00 - it moved slowly at first and seemed to gain speed as it gained altitude.

It began as a bright light and became dimmer the further from the horizon line it got.

At approximately 20-30 degrees off the horizon it disappeared completely.

It did not have the appearance of a large rocket firework and was far away as there is at least a mile of water between the shoreline and the nearest island. It did look like a shuttle or a large rocket launching from a great distance.
