Location: Ashland, OR
Shape: Light
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
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.
