Location: West Point, UT
Duration: 1-2 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail
|Light just as bright by Venus
20:30 is an estimate time, but it happened around that time. I looked out my garage door facing west. There still was a little daylight. I looked up at Venus and saw what I thought was another star. It was just as bright little above and north stationary by Venus. I looked down at my light switch to turn it off and go in my house. Then I remembered that Venus is the third brightest object in the sky. I looked back up at this object when I noticed it starting to slowly move to the north. It started to pick up speed and faded out or twinkled before disappearing.
I have look all over the web trying to find out what it was with no luck. I was hoping that if I post this event somewhere someone would say what it was or they saw also. I live by 3 airfields Ogden-Hinckley Airport, Hill Airforce Base, and Salt Lake International so I am very familiar what aircraft can and can not do.
