Bright Light to SSW Moves Slowly SW.

Location of Sighting: Tacoma, Washington
Date of Sighting: January 19, 2020
Time of Sighting: 6:25 PM PST

Description: I saw a very bright light to the south-southwest about 40 degrees from horizon. light was moving very slowly toward the southwest. The light was steady, not flashing and had no color. It was not a military flare as the light was not changing in any manner except very slow movement to the southwest.

We watched from about 18:25 to 18:50 hours. There was moderate air traffic at that time. We were located about 5 miles from JBLM (Fort Lewis Army Base) and just a few miles from Gig Harbour airport so the light we saw was indeed unusual. All other air traffic we noticed had conspicuous typical flashing lights.

We left for about 5 minutes and when we came back the light, of coarse, was not visible.
I don’t know what the light was, but it was unusual. It was a real UO. I wont call it a UFO because I don’t know if it was flying. Anyway, please let me know if there are other reports of this UO.

Note: I thought possibly that the witnesses saw Venus which is bright in the western sky, but there were some clouds in the sky and the object was seen to move slowly. These observations make Venus an unlikely suspect.

    Commenting on my report: I had no idea Venus could be so bright! The clouds were light and broken so we were able to see a few stars in the direction of mystery light. I will attempt another sighting this evening around 17:30/19:00 or so. As of now I think Venus is best answer, but hopefully we will get a more accurate idea tonight.
