    On January 18, 2003 at 00h20mn UT, I've seen a "slowly" moving object,
    roughly North to South at 60 degree of elevation. This was a very bright
    light (much brighter than Jupiter), with no flashing lights around.
    The observation lasted only few seconds before it disappeared behind the
    I was surprised to see an object so bright and so late in the night.
    I find no matching object in the Visible list.
    As no sidelights were visible, and the object seems to have an apparent
    diameter, I wonder what I have seen.
    Sorry for the lake of accuracy of my report.
