follow up on prior report

4 June 1998 Follow up on the object spotted 29 May 1998. The object appeared as a bright star in the northeastern sky from Chandler AZ on the morning of 29 may 1998, 05:10 hours. Object remain stationary from first sighting until after 07:35 hours. Object was gone at 08:00 hours. Object was approximately 15 degrees above the horizon. One arm length and the width of the hand plus extended thumb. A ratio of approximately 1 to 4 (or .25). This elevation remained unchanged even after I got to work where I easily spotted the object in what I assumed to be the same location. The line of sight distance to work is 7 miles to the southwest. This means, as the elevation was essentially unchanged, the object was at a considerable distance. At least 40 miles I'd guess. The object appeared to displace about one eight inch. That is the gap between the index finger and the thumb at arms length. That would be about what you'd get from a street light at about a 100 feet. The object appeared elongated in the north south direction and I would guess was at least 1000 feet long. It appear to be white in color. note: sighted an object up close 03:40hrs 13 Oct. 1997 went over the road a head of me. Sighting was only seconds. glowed whitish/bluish, large, going west to east, thought it was an airplane coming in for a landing at first. trees on either side of road limited view.
