My husband and I were outside on Saturday, August 9, 2008 at our home in Spring, TX. We were looking at the moon when we noticed another object in the sky. It was a circular ball of light, very bright like the moon. There were no strobe lights on the object and there was no sound, so we knew that it wasn’t a regular air craft. It was moving in a south eastern direction. It moved like a satellite but was clearly in our atmosphere. It was traveling at a lower distance than the air craft in the area usually do. It seemed to glide in the sky, then it sped up. We watched it through the trees and over the houses. The light suddenly got dimmer and dimmer until it vanished completely. We could not identify what it was. W e do live near IAH Bush Airport. A jet came from the opposite direction a few minutes after the object disappeared which was easily identifiable due to the strobe lights and sound.
