update to eariler report (3/23/04)

This is an update to my report submitted on 3/23/04. In the NUFORC note at the bottom of my report it said that I didn't indicate which direction the object was. It was spotted toward the west. Also, NUFORC said that my description was not inconsistent with a sighting of Venus. I thought that also, but what concerned me was that the object was VERY MUCH brighter than I have EVER seen Venus, plus the fact that it just disappeared after about 30 minutes. Also, the next night, Venus was not in the same position in the sky. The star or whatever we saw was down lower to the horizon and a little more towards the north than Venus. I'm not saying we saw anything, but it just was a very strange sight, unlike anything I've seen before.
