Bright light seen in skyI went outside for a cigarette and noticed that there was a thin layer of clouds in the sky also noticing that the planet Venus was not visible but Jupiter was. I then looked toward the North and almost directly above me and seen a very bright light shining through the clouds and moving very slowly to the East in a direct flight path. While viewing this object it also seemed to elluminate a small portion of the cloud making an aura around it. This told me that if it was not in the cloud it was very close to the top of the cloud close enough to make the object to appear larger. The approximate time was 5:45 a.m. because I did not have my watch on or my phone with me and when I came back inside the time was 5:48 on my phone. I had to have viewed this object for a little over 2 minutes until I could no longer see it. This was not an airplane because the light remained visible from viewing the front as it came toward my location and remained bright as it p! assed my location then dimmed out from thickness of the cloud. My phone is currently not active this month but available through email.
