Shape: Light
Duration:90 seconds
silent, stationary light, accelerated slowly and flew away to the south. "that star is moving"

I was walking my stepdaughter to the bus stop and she asked me to pick her up (she is 5) so I picked her up and we were looking up at the trees and the sky and we noticed a bright star next to two other stars (less bright) At this point the brighter star started to move slowly at fist and then more rapidly to the south. I didn't want to upset her so when she said "that star is moving" I said "yep it's probably a plane or a helicopter, knowing full well that it was neither. The object was silent.

My step daughter said " I think it's a rocket ship" I simply smiled and said "maybe." I have seen these before in this area, but it is a little unsettling to know that whatever it is it makes stops in our neighborhood. It is almost as if it could see that we were looking at it because that is when it moved on.

Recently, I have considered that some of these sightings may be drones. If it was a drone, which is unlikely given the power requirements of a modern drone, which would drain to quickly considering brightness of the light it was emitting. I do not think that if this was a drone it is one that is commercially available.
