Location: Brighton, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:10 to 15 minutes
Fast moving light stops in night sky

On July 23, 2007, at approximately 3:30 A.M Eastern, my niece and I were looking at the stars when we noticed a fast moving object that that was streaking from north to south. We thought it was a satellite or the ISS. It was a light no bigger or brighter than the stars in the background. We watched it travel a considerable distance in 6 to 8 seconds, from about the 11 o’clock position until about the 8:40 o’clock position. We could not tell how high it was, but it abruptly stopped at about a 50 degree angle looking to the west. It sat there for 10 to 15 minutes and when it didn’t move we went into the house. There were no contrails or tails and it did not pulse.
