While doing a routine skywatch in my backyard last week I captured one of the biggest and brightest glowing balls of light on record. For those who don't know I have been taping these since June 6th, 2004. So many on tape I lost count but a few stick out in my memory that make me say, "Holy Moly."
This glowing ball of light silently glided across the sky getting brighter as it approached. I have learned through many hours of video analysis and hundreds of hours skywatching that the bigger the object or the brighter the object is depends on how high they are. Believe me when I tell you that this was twice the size of Venus on it's brightest day.
You can see the glowing object pass by the stars showing speed, size & brightness. It came from the Southwest and flew directly above my head. If I looked away I could still see it out of the corner of my eye it was that bright.
I know there are some folks out there who think these are satellites or even planes but they are not. How can a satellite look that big and where are the other lights on the airplane? It's just a ball of light resembling the famous Phoenix Lights sightings.
If anyone has any proof of what these moving balls of lights are please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
