What I thought was supernova clearly was not

Tonight along the Ohio river in southern Indiana looking 183 degrees south and about 30 degrees off the horizon we observed what we believed at first to be a potential supernova. We observed several bursts projecting in the same linear direction and it was very bright. Then a few more in another direction originating from what we had thought to be a star it grew brighter and appeared to dance between 182-184 degrees by my compass. Then as it began to apparently fade a bright something neared itís proximity and then darted quickly from the area in witch we believed we were seeing a supernova. Then object that moved off quickly seemed to have a solid burning white omission and traveled on a heading of west by northwest until I lost sight of it in the horizon. The fast moving object was oval-ish and very bright. It had went straight for the star from below the tree line. As it neared the star like object it grew brighter. It was extremely fast at times. My ele! vation was 620 feet above sea level and the observation of these objects began 9:15 and continued until around 10:00 when what we believed to be a supernova had danced around and grew so dim we nearly couldnít pick it out These observations were made by 3 individuals one of witch is an elderly man who has marveled into the night sky for his entire life he proclaimed he had never seen anything like that he has flown planes at night and served in our navy and said that-that is strange shit
