Up in the east coast NJ last night around 3am, my buddy and I were satellite searching with our eyes, in his very dark back yard. The sky was crystal
clear last night with a very minimal scattered cloud.
We saw a couple of the usual, solid static star-like lighs, moderately paced in a straight line that you typically see with satellites. However, the
next thing we both had never seen before... I was just looking up then suddenly out of nowhere my eye picked up a white flash out of my peripheral, I
closed in on it, and it flashed again, as it began to get closer, we could see a dim glow waning in and out, as if this something was turning,
twisting constantly and a part of it was catching the light of the moon, which is what we accounted for the soft glow waning in and out... But then
there was an actual flicker, a strobe, which looked just like an aircraft strobe, it was white, however, the odd things about this too was, each flash
was a rhythm of 10-15-10 seconds apart. It would flash once then in 15 seconds it would flash again then in 10 seconds it would flash again, and so
on. The flash was kinda like the newer LED bulbs that flash instant on and instant off, it seemed to be a bit slower of a transition to on and off,
but it was certainly more of a flash and not a fade on to off. Now keep in mind, this thing was high up, we could not see any sort of craft structure
with our naked eye, only the light bouncing off of it.
As for speed and trajectory, it seemed to go in a straight line, it also seemed to speed up and slow down slightly, as my friend was suggesting that
the flashes were some sort of thruster. However I couldn't tell if it actually was changing speed, because of the time at night and just the natural
tricks your brain plays on you. And to me the flashes looked like a light. The other point I would like to point out is, this object moved noticeably
slower through the sky as the other regular satellite's we witnessed.
Then about 45 minutes later, a solid white light just moved across the sky at a moderate pace, it was big and bright, solid no flicker and no other
strobe or colored lights. No sound what so ever, after seeing some airliners quite high earlier, higher than this appeared, and we could hear it's
turbines off in the distance, but this, appearing to be significantly lower, could not hear a thing. The light did not fade at any angle, it came head
on to us in the sky passed nearly over our heads and the light stayed constant until it was lost in the tree-line. Again, straight line, about little
bit quicker than an airliner would move high up. So... have at it!
