MY WIFE AND I WERE LOOKING AT MOON AND YELLOWISH PLANET BELOW IT WONDERING IF SATURN..THEN A LIGHT APPEARED CLOSE TO MOON AND SLOWLY MOVED ACCROSS SKY TO SOUTHEAST.MAY HAVE BEEN MOVING FROM SPACE TOWARDS GROUND..TOO FAR OFF..MOVED FASTER THAN ANY JETS.BUT SLOWER THAN METEOR..IT WAS A LIGHT.IT DISAPPEARED B-4 IT GOT TO GROUND AND B-4 OVER HORIZON..MAY HAVE BEEN OVER BALDWIN COUNTY OR PENSACOLA,FL. IF INDEED IT WAS MOVING THAT WAY..LOOKED SORT OF LIKE SATELITE MOVING ACROSS SKY BUT BRIGHTER.

MY WIFE AND I SAW AN OBJECT APPEAR NEXT TO MOON ..IT MOVED ACROSS SKY AT SLOW SPEED BUT FASTER THAN ANY JET..IT STARTED IN SOUTHEAST SKY AND EITHER MOVED DOWN OR TOWARDS FLORIDA PANHANDLE..LOOKED SIMILAR TO SATELITE MOVING ACCROSS SKY BUT LARGER AND BRIGHTER WHITE..WATCHED FOR 20 SECONDS AND BEFORE IT GOT TOO FAR OVER HORIZON OR CLOSE TO GROUND[STILL 5-10 THOUSAND FEET UP} IT DISAPPEARED.WHEN IT 1ST APPEARED IT WAS ALMOST STRAIGHT UP SO IT HAD TO BE AT 30,000 FEET OR MORE UP..MY WIFE THOUGHT IT SPLIT UP B4 DISAPPEARING..SHE THINKS WAS METEOR BUT MOVING THAT SLOW...IF IT WAS STILL IN SPACE,IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AWFULLY BIG..I WAS LOOKING AT IT AND IT NEVER SPLIT UP..MAYBE YOULL GET OTHER REPORTS CONCERNING THIS..
