Southwest Ranches, Florida - 10-01-13

Shape: Light - Duration: 5 minutes

Brilliant white light in SW Sky stationary over 7 minutes then vanishes. Not an airplane!

I exited the rear door of my house, and observed a brilliant white light in the southwest sky.

Initially I thought it was a heavy jet, but it was stationary. I positioned myself placing the object directly over a roof peak on an out building. The object was not moving.

I observed it about 5 minutes. I called my wife and children out to look. I sent my wife into the garage to get a telescope to have a closer look.

As I was calibrating the scope, my wife said it simply vanished. It was visible about 5-7 minutes, but I am not sure how long it was there before I saw it.

We did notice very slight movement down toward the horizon. The object was about 20 degrees elevation and in a southwest direction moving very slightly in that direction.

The magnitude was 100x the brightness of the brightest star or planet; a brilliant white like a halogen bulb.

There were colors like the rainbow shining downward at 8 and 4 o'clock positions. It was impossible to judge the distance, but I would guess it was below any orbit and 50! + miles away.

I am an airline pilot for a major airline. I know what civil and military aircraft look like. This was nothing I have ever seen before.
