Location: Maysville, OK
Shape: Light
Duration:15 - 20 seconds
Bright light moves oddly then vanishes completely

On a clear night night back in late March or early April, I was driving west on highway 19 just leaving Maysville when I noticed in front of me about 60 - 70 degrees in the sky what appeared to be an airplane. It was close. Maybe 3 - 5 miles away. Could have been closer. The light was a very bright white. It was moving towards the NNE, can't say how fast, but it was about the normal speed of a low-flying airplane or helicopter. Something about it's movement seemed odd and really caught my eye.

Then I realized there were no blinking lights at all on it, so I decided to watch it closely. It appeared to slow down and almost completely stop just for a moment and get brighter, then the light went out completely and left no trace whatsoever.

I pulled to the side of the road and watched for a few minutes and to see if I heard any noise from a plane or helicopter, but there was nothing.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. Possibly the ISS, or perhaps an Iridium flare?? PD))
