Shape: Circle | Duration: 00:40:00

1. having coffee on patio 2. brightness and position 3. unknown 4. it began as a large bright star, it descended about 20 degrees over a 10-15 minute period, i went to get my binoculars and it had seemed to have gotten a little closer and dropped another 5 degrees. as i observed it through my binoculars (i steadied my elbows on a table to reduce dancing effect), the object , which was shaped like an oval pill, seem to have either changed shape or discharged what was seemingly a larger object. the new object was circular and had no distinct lights as an aircraft might have. inside the circle was covered by a strange pattern. the color was greenish-yellow with black lines forming the pattern. 5. i was simply stupified and could even venture a guess at what i was looking at. i just enjoyed the experience and the wonder of it. 6. i lost sight as it either got lower in the sky or traveled away from my position. i lost sight in the trees on a ridge about 1/4 mile from me. this is the second night i saw this object...The first night 2 days ago it was already near the top of the ridge and i only viewed it for about 5 minutes. my wife saw it both times as well. i can send a sketch if you'd like.
