|very bright greenish blue light the size of a large star moving slowly NW to SE and back again gaining altitude for 1/2 hour at 3:30
I first noticed a bright greenish blue light high in the northwest sky moving very slowly in a southeast direction. I thought at first it was a helicopter but after a time I realized it was much too high for any helicopter to be flying. After nearly 10 minutes of travelling three quarters of the way across the sky it suddenly stopped. It remained stationary for a minute or two and then headed back the way it came toward the northwest. I assumed it was gaining in altitude as it did so because by the time it reached the northwest position where I first noticed it it was barely perceptable. I stood in the middle of the street and watched it for aproximately 1/2 hour before it was too high in the sky to see.
