Hi everyone, this is my first time posting here. Tonight at approximately 9:08 PM on May 2, 2024, my fiancé and I were relaxing on our balcony when I noticed an unusually bright light in the sky. It appeared from the west, approximately 40 degrees above the horizon, and traveled overhead until it nearly reached the height of about 80 degrees before fading out. The entire sighting lasted just over a minute or so.

The conditions were ideal for stargazing—clear skies, plenty of visible stars, and no clouds. There was a light breeze, and the temperature was around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

The light resembled the glow of an aircraft seen through heavy fog, which was my initial thought. It might have been a comet, but it soon became apparent that it was unlike anything I’ve previously encountered. The light maintained a steady trajectory and speed, similar to that of a satellite, yet it was enveloped in a glow as if within dense fog—though the night was perfectly clear. There were no flashing lights or changes in its movement.

I was unable to hear any sound from the object, which isn’t unusual given my proximity to a busy street, but it’s worth noting.

I’ve attached the raw video file and a night mode photos that show the clarity of the night sky. I’ve included links to the raw photos and video just in case. I hope this enough info to make something of and I look forward to any insights you might have!

Tons of stars and not a single cloud in the sky.
