Very Bright Light Seen Moving Slowly Southward in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: August 12, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9:40 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: August 12, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Unknown
Location of Sighting: Lilly, Pennsylvania (W. Pennsylvania 60 MI E. of Pittsburgh)
Latitude: 40.41 Degrees North
Longitude: 78.64 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the South-Southeast at 5 MPH.

Description: I saw a real bright light moving across the sky from north to south. This object was moving slowly, was not blinking and was just a solid bright white light. It looked like a real bright star and it couldn't have been a satellite. (Their not that bright and I have seen satellites.) It was definitely not an aircraft. Is there and explanation of what this thing could of been?

Comments: A glance at the "Heavens Above" web site ( shows that no bright satellites were in the area at the time of the sighting. The ISS (International Space Station) was not visible. Therefore I can't explain this sighting.
