White light, glides silently across the night sky...

Family was returning home from dinner, and my husband and I looked up at the stars, because it had been a very hazy day, and it cleared up beautifully, when we both, almost simultaneously, noticed a white light, silently gliding across the sky.

We have seen the same thing before in Mesquite, NV, and Lancaster, CA, and quickly pointed it out to our children.

We were all watching it go across the sky, in a south-easterly direction, as it faded and disappeared.

((NUFORC Note: The description seems to us to be consistent with that of a satellite. However, the ISS did not pass within sight of Provo on this date, according to, so it may have been some other orbitting object. PD))
