Object Flight Path
While sitting on my porch at around 10:20pm I was observing an airplane in the sky. I was facing and looking north and the plane was traveling south west. Suddenly from the west, right over my house an unusually bright object appeared almost directly over my house traveling north east. While keeping my eyes on the object I hollered for my oldest son to come look, at which time he and my youngest came out and observed the object as well. When they came out the object was still barley moving and still pretty much overhead. After about 20 seconds the object sped up considerably while gaining altitude. I was still sitting and and the object appeared to me to gain altitude until it faded while ascending at a considerable angle. My 17yr old who was standing said it appeared to him to just blink out and was gone. We both lost site at around what appeared to be at the altitude of the stars in our view.
There where no blinking lights. The object was a really clean white solid light. To contrast I pointed out the airplane to my kids to show the difference. The altitude when first seen started lower than commercial or military planes fly and once it started ascending, it did so faster than any commercial or military plane I have ever seen. Aside from the strangely clean looking solid white light, the slowness it was moving while level then the sudden incline and speed was really unusual. There was absolutely no sound.
