It could of been a meteor,if it was moving extremely fast then it couldn't have been a satelite.

My guess is a meteor that burned up in the atmosphere. Satellites move across the sky pretty slowly. The object getting brighter and then dimming and disappearing would be consistent with a meteor. Ask your friends or someone who might have been out at the same time if they saw it, see what they think, if anyone else saw it.

It was an Iridium flare from the Iridium 26 comm. satellite.

Info here

Heavens-above.com is a great place to find exactly where and when satellites will pass overhead.

It was a sat. Satelites dont create light. They only reflect it. So when one orbits in to a position where they no longer receive sunlight, they turn dark. Thus making it seem as if they had dissappeared. I know its disapointing. The same thing happened to me before.


As far as speed, i think it depends how high of an orbit that particular sat. is in. If in a low orbit, it would appear to be moving much faster (because it would be, lol.) and of course, the opposite would occur if in a high earth orbit.

Well, I'll be a son of a gun. It really was a satellite, not a meteor. That's a really cool link, I'm going to vote you way above for that, hehe.
