|Object was fairly still, however would make unusually sharp moves on occasions.
At about 0130 26 October 1999, I noticed an unusually bright object in the sky. Located approximately. 20deg up from the horizon, E-N-E. It was (seemed) to change colors and was very high. A few minutes later I noticed a fast streak of light that flew quickly in front of it. That could have just been a meteor going by, but this other object that is in the sky even now, I can not identify. Could it be a satellite? I hope so. Or else we have some very curious people or a curious life form out there. There are no telephone numbers for reporting this kind of incident and the local police (non-emerg.) were only interested, "if the object lands."
