Undisclosed, Illinois (United States)

Sighted on Thursday 04. October 2012
Reported on
Shape: Star-like | Duration: Undisclosed
Source:

I was out on the back deck facing south, it was about 8:17ish PM Central time last night. Myself and a roommate were watching the stars and airplanes coming to and from McCarran airport. Then I noticed off to the east just over the tops an extremely bright Orange-Red pulsing "Star" that was hovering in the same spot in the sky for about five minutes or so, about 20 times brighter than the standard airplane traffic so it was very noticeable. We watched the orb begin moving slowly SE and then just vanish instantly.
