For years I have been hoping to experience a UFO, but the closest I came was always some very exciting dreams. But last week I saw something that I can't quite explain. I was out walking the dog late evening when I saw a light in the sky moving (from my perspective) from right to left at a steady pace. Thinking it was an aeroplane a focused in on it to se if I could make out the flashing wing lights. The light started to fade and I thought it was my proximity to a streetlight that was obscuring it, so I backed away from the streetlight and the object continued to fade and quickly disappeared.
There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the stars were bright. I even hung around staring at the area of the sky to see if it had gone behind a cloud I couldn't see, but the object never reappeared. It could have been a meteor, but it wasn't like any meteor I ever saw, this was bright white with maybe a hint of blue in it, it had no trail and it seemed to be moving parallel to the horizon (maybe even in orbit).
Can anyone shed some light on what it might have been? The only rational possibility I can think of is that someone forgot to put a coin in the meter of the international space station.
Any comments are welcom
