Location: Southfield, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Slow moving extremely bright white light, bright enough to hurt your eyes, rapidly changing to low density light while still moving.

While outside watering my flowers just before 9:00pm EDST, I happened to look up and see a slowly moving extremely bright white light approximately twice the size of Jupiter. The light was so intense, it hurt my eyes to look at it. After 30 seconds it suddenly reduced its brightness immediately to that equal to Jupiter and slowly started to fade as it moved slowly from the Northwest to the Southeast. The very strange thing was that it was so bright that when it changed intensity, a residue or pale glow of light surrounded the oject while it moved and then faded out of sight.
