Location: Northland, WI
Shape: Light
Duration:1-2 minutes
A slow light that got darker after it moved faster and probably left our atmosphere.

Well we were outside watching the meteor shower when I noticed a light moving across the northern sky very slowly, the light brightened and then started moving faster. After about 10 seconds the light got darker and darker as it moved eastward. Soon after that light I noticed a faster light. This was an air craft as I noticed the lights. The aircraft had been taking the exact same course as teh prior object. Although once it went towards were the UFO left the aircraft turned south, and lost interest. Later that night I looked straight up and I saw a flash of light this light was silent and probably very high. The flash was large but as it went away it became smaller. After about 15 seconds the light got darker and I could no longer see it. This was not the first time we have seen UFO's. We seem them a lot and they take way different courses than the jets and planes that fly from west to south and vice versa.
