|Very bright light came from West directly under big dipper.
The lite seemed to be floating but was moving toward me from the West directly under the Big Dipper. There was no sound. After I had watched it for about 5 seconds I saw a blank space in the middle that gave it the appearance of two chevrons of bright lite stuck together. Then it immediately went out: zip nada nothing left. It was eerie. On 4/7/00 my husband and I had observed same lite (10xs bigger than Saturn.) This time it was higher in sky and was not moving forward. We did not see any blank spaces. That night it faded then blinked out. The nite of 4/07/00 there were two jets doing some kind of maneuvers in the sky just prior to sighting. We had been watching them and when they were headed East over the mountains to Fairchild (we assumed) was when we saw the light.
