I was driving southeast on mt.sydney rd. when I observed a bright shining object approximately 45 degrees above the horizon. I initially thought it was a star but it then began to dim so I thought it may have been a commercial aircraft reflecting the sun.. But I didn't see an aircraft shape. It had merely remained a circular dull white orb. As I continued down the road, the round object just continued to dim until it completely disappeared.
At no time did I observe a vapor/contrail. It just slowly disappeared as if it were moving away from me.
My reaction was excited. I've seen other objects that were unknown to me in the past, but ultimately ended up being something that could be explained.. This was completely different.
I have no photos to confirm my siting.
I'm a retired State Trooper with 25yrs of criminal and traffic investigations.. I've learned how to evaluate the facts of an incident.
My main reason for submitting this is to see if my description fits any known reports from the past..
