We live within a mile of Palm Beach International Airport and we frequently sit at night outside by our pool. The pool has no enclosure so I typically relax with a cigar and watch various small aircraft move overhead. We have seen small jets, helicopters, high atitude commerical and military flights,shooting stars, satellites, a rocket launch or two, the International space station, even a Chinese lantern.
On this night, like many others, my wife was playing a game on her Ipad while I relaxed in a reclining pool deck chair and star gazed with a cigar. I suddenly noticed that a star (for want of a better term) that had been stationary began moving slowly due east. I asked my wife to verify that this "star" was moving because I really wanted a witness to verify I that I wasn't hallucinating. After all, stars do not suddenly move. After helping her locate it, she agreed that it was moving. It continued to move due east for a few more seconds and then it came to a stop and began to fade. We both got the impression it was ascending upward and within a few more seconds it had completely vanished.
