Last night me and a friend were out fishing at about 9:00 PM. It was a very clear night. We were watching the stars and saw four satellites. We
also saw an iridium flare from a satellite which lasted about five seconds. There was also alot of air traffic.
At about 10:30 we noticed a very bright light on the western horizon. It was moving fast right towards us. It was twice as big and bright as any
other star or planet in the sky. It was also completly silent. We could hear all the other planes which were further away.
I got my camcorder out; and was able to start filming when it was almost right above us. It was still totally silent. There were no red or white
strobes on it. We could clearly see the other planes marker lights. It was also moving alot faster than the other planes. It made from horizon to
horizon in under two minutes.
I videoed it for about a minute. Sorry to say it did'nt turn out as good as I hoped; but there is about a ten second part where it was in good focus
showing the backround stars for a good speed and altitude comparison.
I used a 8MM digital camcorder. I would like to upload the video; but I have no idea how to
Could what I've videoed be the ISS??
