Location: Peoria, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration: 30-45 min.
as i looked at the moon, i noticed what first appeared to be a planet. after a few seconds, i concluded that it was far too bright, and too large to be a planet. incidently, it was positioned at about 4:00 in relation to the moon, and if i held my arm fully extended using my index finger and thumb to measure, it was about two inches away from the moon. i had to run an errand, but watched it as i drove, and noticed that it dimmed and got brighter as if it were rotating. which would indicate that it was producing it's own light rather than reflecting light. the light was a bright white-yellowish light. i reached my destination, went inside for about 20-30 minutes, and it had vanished by the time i got back outside
