then dims very slowly.
NO clounds.
I am at N 52'28 -- W 2' 00

One possibility is a big superflare.
Kepler telescope studies star superflare.
it would need to be big and point to us.

we have so many lights in the sky now.
that we can no longer see UFO's.
why do we have head lights on plains?

I was walking my dog. 01:43 am wensday.
and in the North sky about 45' plus up.
I see a very brite star? a little briter than Jupitor that quickly dims,
verry slowly moveing Down! the the north.

I have a look at what is visble and its not on the list.
Link to site.

the last one did not move.
can any one say what this one may have been?
it was just a little briter than Jupitor.

Just an FYI if you did see a super nova it wouldn't have just happened.
It would be like a hundred or more light years away.

Thread title made me LOL.

I had to say the title is hilarious.
But it's pretty much been said, no probably not.

That site shows a very short list of what's up there at any given time.

I've seen quite a few flaring satellites that don't show up on their list.

You probably saw an Iridium sat flare.

The satellites used are frequently visible in the night sky as short-lived bright flashes, known as Iridium flares

Walking your dog at night?

Anyway, by your description, I think it was a satellite flare.

Don't worry if you can't spell things properly, lots of people can't, nothing to be ashamed of, ignore the spelling Nazis, those with any sense and decency can see what you are trying to say.

There are a couple of possible explanations for your story:

If it was moving and slowly faded out it could have been an orbiting man made object which passed into the Earths shadow. I know you said it wasn't moving, but might that have been a trick of your eyes?

Another is that it was just a star, or planet, going behind a thin layer of dark cloud that might not have been that visible due to it being night time, I have seen this my self quite often.

As far as the super nova goes, no, it wouldn't happen like that.
