Weather: Clear Skies. (Per Witness Observation.)

Description: On Thursday, August 7th somewhere between 9 pm and 9:30 pm I was walking out to my vehicle when I noticed the sky was pretty clear. I started to look for constellations when I noticed this bright object that I had mistaken to be a star started moving east and the light rose higher in the atmosphere until I couldn't see it anymore. The event lasted for about thirty seconds. There were a few clouds, but where I saw this object the sky was clear, very clear.

Comments: The ISS (International Space Station) was visible in this area from 9:22 PM to 9:25 PM CDT. This is quite likely what the witness saw.
