(jumping up and down franticaly waving arms) I too have seen a 'satelite' stop. camping in NE minnesota..wacthed 2 'satelites' approach each other on a parralel course and passed about a finger width apart (highly scientific measurment). 1 headed in a northernly direction and the one heading south stopped about 5 seconds after passing the other...stayed there rest of night.
after reading the thread, im surprised no ones has come by with the oool' scientific explaination for this. im sure it is something along the lines of 'it only appears to stop because the light is reflecting off the swamp gass as the 'satelite' does a normal but seldom seen 'roswell' manuver to change its orbit.. see, simple as that'

I have been seeing a "star" for three day now and I thought it is the evening star but it appears very small when the sun sets then in a half hour moves down lower in the sky now being brighter, there after it moves even lower but now being dimmer again. the in a hour an a half to two hours since it appeared it disappears. I t also accompanied by a smaller dimmer counterpart. Any information would be appreciated.

The next night I think it was still there and pointed it out to my brother. He had doubts and then it started fading out. It was a very clear night and it was the only "star" to fade, and then it faded back in. As far as I know, the "satellite/star" remained there for a week afterward, at which point I wasn't sure if I was getting mixed up with other stars or not.
