It stayed in the atmosphere for a good 30 min. i had my binoculars sitting right by the window so i was able to get a good look at it. then i went outside where there were no obstructions. it almost gleamed like a piece of crystal does. my husband came out and thought i was crazy till he saw it for himself. i took multiple pics and videos. some with my phone and approx 6 with my long distance lens on my cannon. hard to get a good shot with the cannon. i have abs 40 pics. it moved slightly after awhile. but not far. it's light went out for a few minutes then came back on 3 separate times. we have airplanes leaving from ontario all evening long and they were flying all around it. the pilots had to have seen it.
