Location: Olympia, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:2-3 minutes
Orange red light in sky turned to white as it moved figeting across the sky with no noise.

I was standing outside looking at the moon. Beside to the right and a little below I noticed an orange red glow. It was large compared to the usual airplanes in the night sky. So I thought it might be close. It seemed to hover at first so I thought it might be coming toward me. As I watched it, it seemed to flicker. So I then thought it was a firework or something on fire. I couldn't hear any noise out of the ordinary. I then watched it to see what it would do. As I watched, I noticed it was moving right under the moon in the sky. When it got to a location under the moon opposite to the same location I first noticed it, the light became smaller and turned white in color. It kind of blinked slowly as it finally faded. The movement reminded me of a cursor on a computer screen moving slowly and fidgety. I looked around the sky for anything else and noticed nothing else unusual. I then concentrated on the point that it faded to see if it would reappear. It did n! ot. I never heard a noise that was unusual or that I could associate with the light.
