Sighting Reports 2009

Bright Light Travels SSW & Vanishes Before Passing Horizon

Date of Sighting: July15, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:56 PM to 10:59 PM MST
Location of Sighting: Dolan Springs, Arizona (NW Arizona About 50 MI SE of Las Vegas)

Description: I saw a reflected light that was half of the size of the ISS (International Space Station). The light was on course from north-northeast to south-southwest in a straight line course. There were no blinking lights, no change in direction or course across the sky. I heard no sound or other indications that it was a normal aircraft. It was the wrong direction of travel to be the space shuttle or space station. It faded out in an area of about 25 to 30 degrees above the horizon.

Note: The witness is correct that the direction of travel of the light is different than the space station. No other recorded satellites were in the area of the sky at the time and location of the sighting. However, the light still could have been a satellite, but this is doubtful considering that the light disappeared high above the horizon.
