Wasn't sure where to put this, but now that I have gotten over the weird issues creating an account here goes.
About 6 months ago my daughter and I saw something fly over in SW Wisconsin from north to south. It was not commercial as it was way too fast and didn't show up on any of the flight tracking sites. It was a light similar to a satellite but was slower and not the same as other sats I have seen. Plus the north to south path seemed not right for a sat. We have no idea how high it was in the darkness and we couldn't hear it which isn't surprising. I also don't know why it would be lit up if it wasn't a sat. We spotted it as it was going overhead and traversed out of sight to the south in 8-9 seconds.

I think its safe to say it was ours(US). makes you wonder how many UFO's were just some guys(pilot) showing off

None of those looked like what I had seen. A few of those videos have been determined to be meteors. The cop car dash cam one is interesting because it does that flash and then accelerates away seemingly. Some of them could be the green lady, but if they are she wasn't doing what I saw her doing that one evening. Although i was at first fooled by one of those videos posted when I first briefly glanced at it and made a over enthusiastic comment.
Think more of a flare gun. Or like a lone ember from a fire work. Where the tip is white and then there is a color trail behind it.
Except make this trail strait as a line and laser like. not clumpy or intermittent. Like a long green streak or line that trails back a second or so behind it before fading out. Not a tapering tail either where it's thicker on one end. just straight and even minus the dull yellowish source that burns brighter and actually is larger in gauge then the trail it's self. thats what I saw.
Could look different to other people depending on what it was doing when they saw it. But I would say the above videos are not the same to what I saw.
I probably should just make a color drawing of it and upload one day. Would make more sense then my babbling responses in attempt to describe it.

I've conveyed the story a few times on here before, but I remember about 15 years ago looking up at the night sky and seeing something quite odd. I thought I saw a satellite going South to North. As I watched it, suddenly it did a perfect 90 degree turn on a dime. It didn't slow down or miss a beat. Anything at that altitude doing a turn like that, going at those speeds is beyond anything I know of. I asked Jim Oberg about it in his AMA thread, and he told me whatever it was, wasn't a satellite.
Personally, I think it was some kind of unmanned platform.

They didn't do a 90 degree turn like yours did, but it was equally puzzling...the stopped dead in space for around 0.5 - 1.0 seconds (as quick as that) and then did the strangest thing...they pirouetted around each other in a perfectly coordinated movement, making perfectly matched and very smooth circles, BIG circles...each ended up where they would have been if it hadn't encountered their 'dance partner', and carried on their original course and heading.
Weirdest thing i've seen in years.
