|Bright light moving very slowly across the sky suddenly seems to dissapear while quickly accelerating
The smoke from neighboring fires finally ceased direction and I was looking to the skies to point out satellites to a friend.
While my friend went inside I noticed a very bright slow moving light, I began to test if my phone camera would pick it up; it did.
After filming 12 seconds, I stopped the recording and refocused on the object with my eyes.
Within 5 seconds the light almost appeared to stop living then shrank in both size and light intensity before vanishing completely.
I observe aircraft and satellites daily and this is unlike anything I've seen first hand.
