i was wondering if i could ask a question regarding this topic...
when i go out to smoke at night i tend to look up at the stars every now and then. especially on nights like last night when its pretty clear. So i
was standing there, and i see some flashing lights from a couple planes, and then i see this thing that looks like a star moving across the sky at a
fairly steady pace, and it looked closer to me than the planes...or at least *as* close as the planes. now it looked like a satellite just going
across the sky, but any satellite i've seen before looks much farther away and higher up in the sky, and much smaller...i was just watching it and
the other planes and the stars for a moment. then i looked away, down at my smoke, took a puff, and when i looked back up a moment later, it was gone.
no where to be seen. but i could still see the lights flash from the planes, so they werent that far away. i walked down to the middle of the backyard
to try and get a better look at the sky to see if i could see it...but it was totally gone. it looked just like a really bright star moving across the
sky. it did look pretty much how a satellite looks, but this seemed really low...maybe it wasnt? i was hoping that someone here had an explanation as
to what it was, and i figured this might be a good thread to post my experience in, thanks
