I was rolling my trash can out to the street around 8:15 - 8:20 pm.
It was just after dark and a few of the brighter stars/planets were
just becoming visible. There were no clouds. I noticed what I first
thought to be an unusually bright star or planet and I noticed a
smaller reddish star next to it that I assume was probably Mars.
I stopped rolling my trash to focus on it and it was so bright
( much brighter than the north star ) That I started trying to
remember if there was a celestial event happening with a planet
or something. Then the light increased in size and brightness
maybe to the size of a penny held with outstretched hand. The
object then began to travel, I immediately recognized the motion
because I still had the other star as a reference point. The
brightness dimmed to about average star brightness as it traveled
and it quickly seemed to be ascending as it quickly got smaller
and vanished completely.
