Location: Shelby (Lay Lake), AL
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
White star looking object that grew very large, and disappeared.

At first, I thought I was looking at an star, then realized it was moving. The light increased to a very large size, then dimmed quickly and disappeared.

I watched for a while after to see if it would reappear and there was nothing.

I have worked in the space industry for many years so this caught me off guard, as it was like nothing I have witnessed before.
