Location: Dublin (Republic of Ireland),
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Moving Bright Star

I live in the country, I was standing out on my front lawn looking back at my house. There was no sound from the object, it looked like a bright star but not twinkling,

within a minute it faded to a dull star all the time travelling at a steady pace in a north-east direction, it appeared to go beyond our atmosphere into outer space but keeping the same steady pace until it disappeared.

There was a dog barking, I felt a little calmer than usual, it was eerily quiet except for the dog next door.

Very clear night sky out.

During the whole incident the object must have been at least a mile high in the sky. It didn’t move like any flying object I’ve ever seen before.
