Reported: 10/18/2013 3:34:23 PM 15:34
Posted: 10/23/2013
Location: Colville, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:4-5 minutes
A single small white light passing quickly across the sky, dropping in the sky, and disappearing after about 4 minutes.

As I looked to the North, Northwest from Colville on a night with many stars and a nearly full moon lighting the clear black sky, I noticed a bright white light about 10 times the size of the average star, moving very quickly from west to east. At one point it dropped instantly in the sky while keeping the same trajectory.

After 2-3 more minutes it disappeared abruptly.

((NUFORC Note: There was an over-flight of the International Space Station, at the time, and on the date, indicated by the witness.
