Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
A UFO over Lawrenceville, GA, travelling due South which faded as it crossed the sky, followed by an aircraft.

Once spotted, the white, "star-looking" object was about 10-15 degrees South of my Zenith in Lawrenceville, GA. The UFO was travelling the exact direction away from me, due South. It's magnatude was around 2.0 (about the same magnatude as the stars in Ursa Major). As the UFO continued south, it's magnitude diminished. The UFO was no longer visible at about 20-30 degrees above the horizon. When I could no longer see the UFO I spotted an aircraft that sounded like a commercial airliner. The aircraft was travelling at the same speed(from my viewpoint) and parallel to the UFO. The aircraft was about 5 degrees East of the UFO's trejectory, and also lagged the UFO anywhere from 40-50 degrees. Both the aircraft and the UFO travelled in a straight path.

At 23 years old, I am an amateur astronomer who has always taken an interest in looking at the stars. I became extremely dedicated to observing about 2 years ago, which is when I was trialling a nice pair of binoculars to see if I wanted to invest in a telescope. Currently I own 2 refracting (60mm & 70mm) scopes and 1 reflecting (130mm) telescope.
