My wife and I were just sitting outside of our fifth wheel camper, which we have been living in for the last month. We moved to Minot North Dakota, for a company that I have worked for now for three years. We are closing on a house on Monday, ( but I digress). Any way we were just sitting there twenty minuets ago, when we saw a bright light in the North West sky. I thought it was a satellite, I have seen them since I was a young boy in Wyoming. I can easily recognize them, and have even stayed up late at night to see things like the space shuttle docked at the ISS. This satellite just kept getting brighter and brighter until it seemed to be as close as a helicopter. However there was no sound at all. Our daughter was with us and said it’s a UFO. I am not so easily convinced though, and told her it is probably a lot higher than we think and that is why we can not hear it. At this point it was close to over head, and I thought it must be an airplane that took off from the airport here. Then as it came over head it slowed down to a speed that I have never witnessed an airplane in take off . as it passed over head I thought at this time of day it should fade out in the south east sky but it never did it just seemed to get faster as it went away. Another thing that never happens with satellites or planes, anyone else see this thing?
