Message: At 11:20pm tonight I was standing in my backyard and saw a bright white light suddenly appear in the Southern sky at approximately 55 or 60 degrees to the horizon line. The light was as bright as a white flair and moved very slowly to the right for approximately 10 – 15 seconds then the brightness diminished and the light “faded” out and I couldn’t see it any longer. The light was not a shooting star, it moved too slowly and was brighter than anything else in the sky. I was not lightening or ball lightening. There is not a cloud in the sky tonight and the moon is not out.
There are lots of stars out and this was in no way similar to any star in the sky. It did not have a tail or trail, and did not blink or make any noise. I have NEVER seen anything like this in my life. I have seen comets, shooting stars, eclipse of the moon, shuttle launches, and am familiar with star formations. I am 48 and witnessed this with my son who is 24. We both saw the same thing and neither of us can explain just what it was that we saw.
