Location: Arlington Heights, IL
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
|End tip of handle of Ursa Major, the pot, in the west sky, had a star way below and about two degrees south. This night there was a very bright star between these two stars. The moon was way to the south with two stars/ planets below.
The new bright star thought to be a plane stayed in place. I pointed my flashlight at i ( like that would do anything) then it looked like a dot within a circle, glowed brighter, then disappeared, as if a lightbulb glowed brightly then went out!
Or, if possible, like a sci-fi movie, it was a wormhole that closed or a star that exploded and vanished! It may have looked like a fossile fuel ship flew straight away and got smaller as the distance grew.
This sighting was in the west end of the sky with Ursa Major located west/northwest.
