Report on the evening newscast of an object with multicolored lights in a parallel flight pattern with the Mir spacestation.

I did not personally observe this craft, however it was reported on the WSB TV evening news by the weather reporter Glen Burns. On the 18:00 news cast Glen Burns reported that the Mir spacestation would be visible from Atlanta at approximatly 19:15 as it passed over the area. It was reported on the 18:00 newscast on 03/15/01 that the station had recieved numerous call form viewers that observed the Mir spacestation and also observed another object with multicolored lights on a parrallel course with the spacestation. Mr. Burns also stated that he had contacted several agencies and noone seemed to know what this object was. It was also reported that a pilot had observed this object also, and had stated the object appeared to be at an altitude of approximately 100 miles.
