I had been sitting on my new deck watching the sun go down. Once the sky darkens I like to watch the stars and look for airplanes as they fly over. I had my binoculars out, watching a few planes when I looked to my side and saw a really bright light coming toward me. I just stood there thinking "am I really seeing something that's not a plane". Then it hit me to pick up my binoculars and look at it. Although it was moving fast, it was much slower than a plane, with no colored or blinking lights. I brought my binoculars down and listen for an engine. There was absolutely no sound at all. I finally had the sense to pick up my cell phone and snap a few shots as it flew above my house. It just flew toward the north in a straight silent very bright manner. The brightness was similar to the light of the moon. It was definitely not a plane. I watched it until I couldn't see it for my house any longer.
