Location: Tulsa, OK
Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
Quick moving light that faded out.

I was standing in the parking lot of an apartment complex 8-10 miles South of the Tulsa airport talking to family members. I looked up to see what I originally thought were airplane lights traveling North, but they seemed too high for our proximity to the airport. Then, I noted that the light appeared to be moving too fast to be an airplane that high. Just before it disappeared behind the top of one of the buildings, the light faded out like a meteorite would and was gone. The light appeared to be generally round in shape. There were at least two colors as if it were landing lights, but they were not spread out like landing lights on a jumbo jet. I suppose it could have been a small, private jet heading for a landing. That would explain why it appeared to be too high and fast to be a jumbo jet. But, then, why did the lights fade out?
