Observer
NameBen T
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was a partially cloudy, dark, night, I was walking back to my car and it appeared tracking from right to left, getting higher in the sky over about 2-3 seconds. There were street lighta around but it stuck out. It was a bright, pale yellow, glowing ball with a short tail. If a fist at arms length is 10 degrees, it tracked about 40 degrees before it disappeared behind a cloud. It was at least as bright as I've ever seen Venus and about the size of a pea held at arm's length. It was an amazing sight.
