((NUFORC Note: Based on the observers' experience, we suspect that the report is quite credible. The object probably was not a satellite if, in fact, it was in sight for approximately 6 minutes. Almost certainly, a satellite would not be visible in the night sky for that long. Please see other reports for this time and date. PD))
