My husband and I saw something strange in the sky last night. We were in the hot tub, listening to dreamland and watching the stars. It came zooming across somewhat in the northeast sky and heading east. It had a faint orange light and was a crescent shape. (My husband says he saw a light, but I don't remember that.) I estimate the visual size as being about an inch across at arm's length. (long arms) The speed was much less than a shooting star, but much faster than any airplane. There was no sound and no sonic boom of any kind. This appeared sometime close to 8:15 or 8:20 Pacific Daylight Time. So fast, my goodness. Also, the object gave me the impression of flowing through water. Like the stars seemed distorted by it. Can't really describe very well. That's about it. Thanks.
