Duration:45 seconds
Bright object moves west to east above Jupiter.

Was viewing Jupiter thru 30 power scope on total station.

I saw a bright white light about as bright as Jupiter and tracked it for a while as it headed west to east (heading was about about 90 to 110 degrees).

Last seen thru scope angle was 203d 21' 54", elevation 27d 13' 11" (from my location at 48d, 46' 58.1", -117d 17' 16.5", ne of Ione WA).

Object did not have any flashing navigation lights and I went outside to listen for sound and could hear nothing, no wind.

It traversed my field of view about 5 degrees west and above jupiter to the hill to my south east in perhaps less than 35~45 seconds.
