Location: Monroe, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration:15-20 Sec.
Sighted an object for 15-20 Sec. moving in a West to East direction. We initially thought it was a satellite, then a plane, then couldn't make an exact determination as it was traveling too fast to be either, but still slower than a falling star. It moved exactly like a slow moving satellite in that it didn't deviate course, but stayed in an exact line. Unlike a satellite or plane it disappeared when it was directly overhead instead of it remaining visible to the end of the eastern horizon. It appeared to change brightness just before it disappeared, somewhat of a corona around the object or the light simply became more diffuse. We enjoy sky watching and this objects behavior was a first for the both of us. We have seen numerous planes, metorites, and satellites.
