I'm assuming this is the best spot to post this.
I've been drinking but I know what I saw. Before anyone gets exited or angry let me just say that I live roughly 2 miles from a major airport so I
watch airplanes every day and night, I think I know the flight patterns well enough and can recognize the flashing lights from very far away, I see it
every day. I'm not trying to imply that this was an alien spacecraft or a secret government project. All I'm saying is that I'm used to seeing the
same things everyday and this was something different.
So this is where I'll loose even more readers. Sometime between 4:50 am and 5:00 am EST I was urinating on my fence that faces roughly north and I
was looking up, I always do. When you can go numer 1 outside, why waste the water inside. Anyway I see what looks like a really bright star roughly at
what I guess would be slightly more than half way between if I was looking staight up and straight ahead. I focused on it because it was brighter than
everything else. It was not an airplane or a helicopter, I see them all the time. It never flashed, it never blinked, there were no colored lights, it
was a bright solid white light that moved from point A to point B in under 10 seconds.
I don't know how satalites look but I don't think they move that fast, I thought I read that they travel from horizon to horizon in around 7
minutes? The light I saw was way faster than that. Whatever it was, was traveling in the general direction of the airport but it was like nothing
I've seen before. Does the ISS, or satalites move that fast? My first thought was to go grab my camera but it was moving so fast I knew I'd miss it.
The funny thing is that I'm not impressed with lights in the sky videos but that's exactly what I saw, a light in the sky. While not impressive by
itself, putting it up against all the air traffic I'm used to, it's at the very least curious.
