Location: Goodyear, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
I looked up and saw an object that looked like a star-almost as bright as venus...this was too big and bright to be a satellite.

I live in the pathway of an "aviation hwy" which commercial airlines use (East/West)all day long, also at an inbound flight path for commercial airlines into Sky Harbor Airport at lower altitudes.

I looked up and saw an object that looked like a star-almost as bright as venus, but was not travelling on the common "aviation hwy" rather heading more NNE crossing that hwy. The light cause a commercial airline to flash its headligts, but this object never replied or changed its path. It also made no noise and had no other visible lights blinking or any other colors. Once this odject passed overhead, Im guessing at about 5 to 10,000 feet, it was probably 15 miles away from me heading NE, and its light was eactly the same, just as bright as if it was a ball of light -as bright and big as Venus - as if it was using that look as camo. Anywhoo.. If it was a plane, the light would have vanished when it was past my location as I would not have been able to see the headlights anymore. So, after the flying planet was probably over phoenix, its light dimmed out until it was gone. This was too big and bright to be a satellite.
