Location: Mount Vernon, OH
Shape: Circle
Duration: 4 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
large bright white light moving up to the sky.

I seen what looked to be a single very bright star in the sky after severe thunderstorm. There was still a lot of clouds in the sky but this single star stood out and was bright. It slowly floated up, very slowly at first.

I waited for it to get closer thinking it was a helicopter coming closer. It passed behind a tree in the distance. I waited for it to pop up over the top of the tree. When it did the light was much fainter and smaller.

There wasn't enought time that had passed for a helicopter to be that close to me and my husband then get that far away so suddenly. Then it progressed upwards at a faster rate behind the cloud coverage. My husband said he seen the exact same thing a few weeks ago while at work during 3rd shift.
