My wife, duaghter and I were enjoying a warm evening on our deck. My attention was drawn to a bright light approximately southeast and 80 degrees above the horizon from our position. The altititue was unable to be determined but jet contrails appeared to be below the level of the light. The bright light decended irratically and then appeared to reach a steady flight path or level travel of flight. No contrail or visual evidence of the flight path was apparent. The light slowly dimmed and disappeared. My wife and daughter also witnessed this event.

Note: This sighting appears similar to the Reno, NV sighting that occured at the same date and time. I am hesitant to report this sighting due to my profession. I have reported one other sighting when I lived in Tillamook, OR. I am willing to talk to an investigator but I would respectfully request that my identity be kept confindential. Thank you.
