Az/Alt: ~180/~49.45I thought I was seeing an airplane pass. I noticed what looked like the landing lights of an aircraft it was moving a liitle fast and that caught my attention. It was moving West to East in the southern early morning sky. Its brightness was low and constant and no marker lights were observed, not surprising considering the altitude and distance.The point of light rapidly increased in brilliance, then dimmed a little and I observed a faint streak then it was gone. The streak of light appeared to be at about a 20-25 degree angle toward its original line of approach.I observed the area for a few minutes, to see if it reappeared from behind a cloud, but it was not observed again.The following is an intensity chart: (10=brightest observed, 1=dimest observed) 1 second intervals1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 10 9 8 1 0 -0 -1 -2 -4 -6
