|Slow moving bright light becomes extremely bright and ascends straight up and out of sight very quickly.
Very bright slow moving object was believed to be a satallite. It became very very bright, slowed down to a near stop then ascended striaght up, dimming to a pinpoint and out of sight in approximately 7-8 seconds. It was observed in the big dipper moving in a north to south direction. I first noticed it at the bottom of the Dipper (cup area). When it hit the top of the dipper (cup area)it became extremely bright and shot straight up, dimming to a pin point and out of sight.
