Location: Temecula, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 min
Slow bright light moves across night sky over Temecula

My son and I just saw a strange light flying slowly across the sky. It changed intensity several times before vanishing. It was not blinking. I have seen satellites move across the sky before and this was much lower. It changed direction twice but not suddenly. It gradually hooked around 20 degrees and then straightened out again. It was so bright initially that my son noticed it through a window in the house. He got my attention and I went outside to see it, I watched it move slowly about 5 minutes then vanish overhead.
