|Bright white light crossing the sky
My wife and I were sitting in our back yard in Omaha, NE,. enjoying the evening. We observed a light in the sky traveling form the northwest toward the southeast. We watched the light for about 15 to 20 seconds before it dimmed and disappeared.
The light was bright white at first I thought it might be an airplane with its landing lights on as bright as it was but as it moved away from us we could not see any strobes or anti-collision lights then it started to dim and was gone. The time was 0148 UTC or 2028 local time.
The weather is 80 degrees and the sky clear the course of the object would have put it north of Offutt/Sac AFB. This was no aircraft that I have seen before.
I am an aviation enthusiast and amateur astronomer.
