I know its while since this thread was opened, but on holloween night, i saw exactly the same kind of thing.
I was standing on the back yard with my 3 year old daughter waiting for my son to come home, he'd been trick or treating with a friend and his
Now my daughter is pretty unsure of the dark, (it was sometime bewteen 6-40 and 6-50pm, my son was supposed to be back by 6.30 and they were late
Anyhow i was talking to my daughter about the stars (which I dont know alot about! but I was trying to reassure her that the dark is nice with the
stars and all) and we were watching planes go over, there were a couple of stars above my neighbours house, northwards, and i happened to look up and
one of them had gone really bright, I mean really bright, like a plane light when it's coming in to land, the only weird thing was it was stationary.
It didn't move a millimetre, then it just started to fade out, after about 10 seconds it faded back to the star that was above my neighbours
I felt goosebumps up my arms, the stranger thing was about maybe 5 minutes before that, I saw what I assumed was a shooting star slightly to the right
of this brighter star, it travelled upwards untill it disappeared, when I realised that a shooting star would be faster than this I assumed it was a
satellite (which it more than likely was)
But can anyone shed any light on this thing that was bright and then faded out.
If you need anymore info, please ask and I will do my best to answer.
