Reported: 8/20/2012 11:29:21 PM 23:29
Posted: 9/24/2012
Location: Grants Pass, OR
Shape: Circle
Duration: 1 minute or less
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Stars appear, move and fade away.

I have been seeing stars that stay put and then slowly fade to a small pin point, then leave the area. I have also seen stars that are bright take off across the sky, flash, move some more, then fade to a small, almost undetectable light across the sky, then disappear.

This is happening at or around 9:30 to 11:00 pm. I saw a star at the bottom of the big dipper handle, stayed for 1 minuit...then fade to a smaller light and take off. This has been happening almost every night for 2 or 3 weeks.
