|Bright light traveling across sky near Phoenix, AZ faded to black and kept traveling.
I was sitting outside in my hot tub looking up at the sky. I live pretty far out, so there is not alot of light pollution and the sky is very clear. I saw a controlled bright light in the sky. It appeared to be inside the atmosphere. It traveled across the sky at about the same speed as a shooting star, but it faded to black and kept traveling across the sky.
Every night I see multiple shooting stars and airplanes landing at nearby airports, and this was definately not the same type of light. I served four years in the Marine Corps and am familiar with the capabilities of the F-14, F-16, and Harrier jet.
