Duration:5 - 7 sec.
|No shape to craft since distance was too great. From my location in east Vancouver. Compass direction of aprx. 140 degrees. Elevation was aproximately 70 degrees. Direction of travel is estimated at 150 degrees moving from north to south. First noticed a faint light appearing to be a satelitte. The light quickly grew to the size of a penny held at arms length. The light was similar to the landing lights on a commercial airliner at aproximately 5 miles out and coming straight on. The light diminished as quickly as it appeared to the point that it resembeled a high orbit satellite and disapeared from sight very quickly.|
