Location: Bakersfield, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:4 minutes
Looked like mars, but brighter, vertically. Moving unnaturally, undirectionally through the sky at a controlled speed

Two of us were sitting on a trampoline in my backyard when my dog ran to the east corner of the yard and barked once, which caught our attention. When she ran back to us, we noticed a bright object to the east in the sky. It looked like a planet, but brighter, and vertically shaped. It was moving at a constant, controlled speed, faster than a plane yet incredibly slower than a shooting star or a meteor. There were no flashing lights and no tail, only one solid white light. It was moving from south to north, first at a downward curve, before it moved closer to us which we were able to notice by its increasing size, and then once more at a downward curve moving north before it disappeared behind trees.
