No of observers: 1

Location: Anthony, KS, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Aircraft nearby

Bright white light. No FAA lights observed. Moved about 20% faster than the jets I usually see.

Clear skies, moon was almost full. I saw a light as bright as Jupiter moving SSE (away from me) about 20% faster than the jets I see. I went inside and got binoculars and returned to observe. The object was a bright white light. It had no FAA lights at all. There was another plane or jet in that quadrant of sky and I could make out its FAA lights clearly. The object moved behind some trees so I rushed forward to observe it further. I only lost sight of it for about 3 seconds while I moved but it had disappeared by the time I should have had line of sight. I don't think it was sunlight reflecting off a fuselage as the sun had been down for too long. It wasn't a satellite (I note those often) this was much much brighter. I am an avid skywatcher and this is the first time I've seen something I couldn't identify. Tonight, (7/16/06) my wife and I observed an object that could have been the same one. I'll file that sighting next. I give you my word as a Texan that this is the truth.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
