Posted: 9/29/2004
Location: Fresno, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:4 minutes
Object at 8:03 p.m. 09/09/2004 object was going from the west to east at about 60 deg from south 40 deg from straight up to south. The object was a solid white light and moved about as fast as a fast jet would go when in high altitude or as fast as a small plane would at about 1000 feet up. This object did not appear to very high in altitude it appeared to be at the altitude that a small plane would be at to travel across the valley (3,000 to 5,000 ft.). There were no other lights on it and did not have any blinking lights or colored lights. The same brightness was observed when due south and when moving into the east. I looked at it through my binoculars 10X50 and only a bright light could be seen. I have look at Mars (or is it Venus) with the same binoculars and see the changing colors, I did not see any change in color while viewing this object. It just went over the horizon (behind the next house).
