i always and looking for satellites. this particular night i thought i had found one because of the speed that the light was moving was similar to that of a satillite. the event that made me change my mind was that satillites travel in a straight patteren (at least all of the ones that i have seen before) this one slowed down and then quickly turned to the west and vanished.

there was only one. it could have been a satellite but it slowed down then made a quick change in direction. it was traveling south along the coast of cancun, mexico and then it slowed a bit and started traveling west. then vanished very quickly. i was with 3 other people but it was hard for me to see and i didn't want to loose it so i didn't point it out. we were walking along the beach at the same time. i didn't expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. when it did, it surprised me. but by the time that that happened it was gone. since my story is pretty sketchy i will leave it up to you if you want to contact me.
