I think I saw something similar the other night on a Sunday, June 27 here in Moscow. I live on the 13th floor and I have a good lookout point on my
balcony. There is an airport some 20 km away from here and I always see planes on their flight paths, approaches and I can even see them landing and
taking off. I use the binoculars, of course. That is to say that I know how these planes look like at night.
It was a starry night, roughly 2am when I walked out to the balcony and something has immediately grabbed my attention. It looked like a bright star
and it was moving from a distance in my direction. It moved at a medium altitude, probably more or less on the same altitude of the planes on a
descent path that I see around here. I grabbed the binoculars and continued to watch. I thought that there was no point in taking pictures since it
would be just one of those 'light in the skies' pictures.
It was moving in my general direction but past my house at a medium speed. Like I said, to a naked eye it looked like a bright star. The colour of the
light was white and cold. Looking throught the binoculars it was obvious that it was a single light and I could not make out any outline of a fuselage
or wings, as I normally do when it comes to planes.
The object was silent and as it passed the house and became blocked from view I went to the fire exit balcony on the other side of the house. The
light was moving away at the same speed. It had the same brightness, which as I thought ruled out a helicopter with a floodlight. I mean if it was a
chopper with a floodlight facing forward then I would not see the floodlight any more while looking at it moving away, right?
