Duration: 2-3 minutes
No of observers: 1
Location: Litchfield, MN, USA
Characteristics: Lights on object
Round bright whit light that move from one horizon to the other.
At 3:30 hours, I went outside for a cigarette, while I was star gazing I noticed a bright light in the west northwest sky at about my one o'clock (I was facing west). It's intensity was a little bit brighter than that of Venus. It moved from the west northwest to the east southeast at a steady pace.
I looked very carefully for strobing lights like an airplane would have even using my hand to block out street lights. There were not any strobe light that I could see.
This is a quiet little town and as such I would normally have been able to hear the light rumble of jet engines, but there was none. Nor were there any visible contrails behind it although there was not a moon in the sky at the time. It reminded me of a satellite crossing the sky except the fact that satellites travel from south to north here (at least the ones I've ever seen here).
I watched it till it was out of sight and then came in to make this report.
