Large, bright light, moving slowly then zipping away.October 29, 2012 Tonight (Oct.29) about 8:25 p.m., looking to the west, just above the trees, saw a dim star when a bright, white light (LED brightness) appeared on the north side of it. It was going southeast, called my sons to look. Saw my neighbor (a Marine) outside, asked if he knew what it could be, "no." It continued going southeast, slowly, then it just zipped out of sight. Appeared to disappear upwards, not lateral.
