Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
Round shape illuminated object going South and then becoming totally dark as it continued flying

I live close to 91st Ave and Thomas Rd in Phoenix, AZ. Around 10:30pm, I was eating a snack and decided to go outside the house, to the backyard to be especific... The sky was mostly clear, with a few clouds to the North covering the moon, as I was scanning the sky watching planes going by I turned Northwest and saw a light that appeared to be a big star; however, I noticed that it was moving South in a straight line between 91st Ave and the loop 101 at about 3000 feet of altitude... The object was totally iluminated with a round shape; however, as I was watching it, the light on the object started to fade until it went totally dark; I could still see it for a couple of seconds, the object continued the trayectory to the South but a tree obstructed my sighting and couldn't see where it went... I'm convinced that it was something strange.
