Duration:10-15 seconds
Bright star like object that crossed sky then went straight up out of sight.

I have never reported any type of ufo before so this will be my first time. I live in the city of Spokane by the college campus of Gonzaga. I stepped out onto my front porch as I do often on a clear night and look up at the stars. Instantly I noticed a very bright star to the south that at first seemed stationary but then started moving across the sky due north. It looked like a very bright star much bigger then any satellite but had no lights that a aircraft would possess.

It traveled for maybe 5 seconds before stopping I expected at this point to be able to recognize the object but at that point it took off directly straight up shrinking in size and then disappearing. I don't know what else to say except this was no satellite no aircraft or a illusion the object traveled far enough and definitely went straight up to rule out a illusion.
