|Satilite looking dot that would "streak" every minute or so.
06-23-2000 Last night I was out having a smoke watching the SE sky and noticed a light in the corner of my eye. At first I thought it was just a satillite but it blinked in and out - almost a three or four second pulse. When it was not "pulsed" or lit up, it was really hard to see. then my wife noticed a second one. Normally I would just shrug this sighting off as "explainable" until they would "flash" or "streak" What I'm saying is, they kept on their path heading NW (went through Big Dipper - eventually) and as they traveled they would throw off this very bright "Streak" about 10 times longer than they were. It was if they were turning on massive bright "headlights". Pretty neat.
((NUFORC Note: This incident occurred approximately 5 minutes after an airline pilot on the east coast reported having an anomalous, apparently non-aerodynamic, object streak past his aircraft, within approximately 50 vertical feet of his right wing. PD))
