|Bright white light, moving North. Faded from view on a clear night.
Skies clear, no moon. My wife and I observed a white light, as bright as Jupiter, to the West. It was moving North. No FAA lights or flashers, just a bright white light. I went inside to get binoculars. I was gone for seven seconds (I counted). When I returned, it was gone. My wife said it had just faded away rather than blink out or zip away. I reported an object very similar to this about a ten days ago. I am an avid skywatcher and know the planets, planes, and often watch satellites. This was much brighter than a satellite.
