Family and I out during unusuallly warm evening notice a very bright, silent object to the south-southeast of downtown Erie. It travels in a straight line fading in brightness as it moves over the lake. No flashing lights, so not conventional aviation, but resembling the ISS - lit only by the sun, it had a goldish-white glow. ((I checked - the ISS is not around until morning). Also not a taurid meteor. Hard to say altitude or size, but it was about the size of a BB at arms length and right about 45 degrees above the horizon. When I first saw it it was probably south-southwest of downtown perhaps near Summit and tracing a path right up the middle of the city near state street.About 2 minutes after the first object faded in the north over Lake Erie another objct with same description followed in it's path. I'm a seasoned skywatcher with aviation experice. Others in town mentioned sightings last night too.
