On the evening of September 3rd, I was smoking a cigarette on my deck looking up at the westerly sky. This is a nightly routine for me as I enjoy observing satellites and shooting stars. Several civilian and military airports are in the region as well, so I understand the energy and the sound associated to these aircraft. So that is why I find what I have observed in the above mentioned evening very peculiar.

So like I said, I was looking up at the stars facing west, nothing in the Not even any aircraft the neighbors cat sort of distracted me so I briefly looked away from the sky. As I looked back up I noticed what I thought were headlights to a passenger jet (above 35,000 ft.) Traveling south to north.. No sound associated to this craft what so ever. Also moving extremely slow for any aircraft I have ever seen from t any era. As I was thinking to myself how it was funny how I did not notice this craft approach; the light suddenly dimmed to what looked like a satellite or a star for about ten seconds.. Then fading away into into the nights sky.
