Duration: 10 sec
Was directly overhead, was looking at the moon about 15 degrees to my right. Object travelled from north to south, noticed it at about 80 degrees and it faded/disapeared at 50 degrees as I was facing south. Seemed very high and very massive, vaguely triangle/rectangle shaped, three irregular shaped very dim glowing areas - low red/amber, appeared similiar to an after-image from viewing a light source; I am, after testing and evaluation,certain that it was not a after-image from looking at the moon.

The features were not similiar and after looking away and back again with a little scrutiny I found it again. There was no noise and no flashing lights. At all times it was hard to discern. It seemed to pause at 50 degrees then continued and then I could no longer find it - but this is more subjective.

My impression was of a aircraft-carrier floating across the sky but again this is very subjective.
