Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Oval
Duration: 10 seconds
At 9:40 PM I was walking the dog on a clear warm night.

I noticed almost straight up towards the north a white oval shape as bright as the North Star but the size of Mars moving from south to north. It was moving about as fast as a single engine plane away from me and seemed to be at a high altitude. There was no sound. ]

I watched it in clear view and it suddenly dissapeared. There were no blinking tail or wing lights, and since it was moving away from I know the brightness of the light was not any kind of head wing lights. I watched cover about 15% of the sky. The sighting lasted about a total of 10 seconds.
