Full Description of event/sighting: I have seen a couple of stories that match mine on the site. I went out and caught the bright star then realized it was moving. The light was white, no blinking lights like a plane. It moved at a steady and fairly slow speed across the sky to my north from downtown then I realized it had changed direction and was headed right over my home. It was difficult to tell the height of this thing, I'd originally said no more than 100 feet over some tall pine trees. But when it got closer to my house, and it was within a few blocks, it vanished. I had binoculars out to stargaze and I looked and saw it, moved the binocs back to my eyes, put the binocs back up and voila, gone.

It looked "satellite" until it looked so close to the ground. This thing was bright. No way to miss it. And it too was absolutely silent, noiseless. Also in the western sky over Columbia last night was something I have seen a few other times as well. It too looks like a star, but way away. It is a bright star like object, but it has blinking red and green lights that appear to blink in both colors on both sides or maybe this thing could be "spinning". I don't know. I have seen it in different areas of the sky over the past two years around here. At any rate, it stays right there, put, doesn't move for hours and hours, perhaps all night but is in a different spot the next night or is totally missing from the sky. In Columbia, numerous military air operations do go on. We see all kinds of things in the sky if we look. I've even seen them flying Ospreys here. You can't miss that, the loudest thing I ever heard.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
