Duration:2 minutes
The object remained above the atmosphere, dipped, became slightly larger, went back up and was gone.

The object began to appear between the constellations Bootes and Coma Berenices. It suddenly appeared starting out as a tiny dot much like the Mir, became larger up to the size of what Jupiter would look like, then suddenly began to become smaller and smaller and then disappeared altogether. It went from North to South. I thought at first maybe it was the Mir as my wife and I watch the stars at nite and are familiar with occasionally seeing satellites go by. I have a little science background and to me, it looked as though a satellite had somehow begun to dip back down into our atmosphere, and then went back up into its orbit, however it never blinked, changed color, or looked like anything other than a satellite. I still do not necessarily believe it was anything other than a satellite, but so out of control?
