Location: Glen Cove, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:3 min approx
bright slow moving object that started to dim then disappear as another faint "star" slowly fell to where it disappeared in the nw sky.

saw bright light that at first looked like a star, but was moving at a slow pace originally from a northwest to southeast direction then to a northeast direction. I thought it was a plane but there was no noise, no blinking lights of any kind and it was very bright, mabey five to ten thousand feet in the air. it was large. I called my son out to the front yard to see it. Although it hadn't travelled far it started to dim quickly. He came out, looked, i said its dimming, he said no there it is and pointed, but pointed above where my craft was. my craft disappeared and i saw what he saw. A faint light, like a star, fall slowly to approxamatley where my craft disappeared. It was amazing and i hope someone else saw it.

((NUFORC Note: If the object was traveling from northwest to southeast, it was not the International Space Station, which passed overhead Glen Clove at 19:55 hrs. on this date. It may have been another satellite, but satellites do not turn. PD))
