Shape: Light
Duration: 7 seconds
Very bright object in front of big dipper which disappeared to nothing on 6/13/10 at 22:24 hours.

Observing the area toward the front or opening of the big dipper at a distance equivalent to an extended hand width to the east at about 22:24 hrs, saw what appeared as Venus appears in a clear sky when it's closest to earth- except larger or brighter. About 3 seconds after spotting it, it began diminishing in size. The brightness appeared to remain the same and it appeared to just get smaller or retreat to a more distant position over about 4 seconds until it was gone. No erratic movements or anything, just a very bright presence appearing in a location I am not use to seeing any extrememly bright stars or other astrological bodies.

((NUFORC Note: Iridium satellite? PD))
