Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
|Unk blue object seen over Mesa, Az in the vicinity of Mars.
I was outside smoking on the east side of the building I work in when iI just happened to look up into the sky and saw a light that resembled the star Sirus in shape, size and color moving nort at a pretty slow speed, but then it quickly picked up speed dimming as it moved north across the sky.
The event lasted about 10 seconds! It was was about 45 degrees high, due east and for about 3 or 4 seconds it was slowly moving north, it picked up speed pretty fast an it was also dimming rather fast as well.
It had just went into a thin stretch of clouds and I waited for it to reappear on thr other side but it never did. Even a plane coming head on would not have the brightness that the object had and I stood outside an extra 5 minutes just to see if it ever cleared the clouds, it never did, it just vanished!
I'm an amateur astronomer and I know my stars pretty well, this was pretty high in the night sky and it appeared right in the vicinity of Mars on this date and time.
