|blinking light moving very fast across the sky , faster than jets do and satellites don't have strobe lights
I often look at the night sky with binoculars. It was very clear this evening and not to cold so my wife and I went out to look at the stars. We do this quite regularily and are getting to know the constellations fairly well. I saw a blinking light through my binoculars and followed it for a few seconds before pointing it out. We often track satelites but this was diferent. It had a blinking light, and was moving very quick. I first spotted it between the constelation Orion and Pleiades and it travelled straight as an arrow towards the big dipper then continued out of site. I frequently watch passenger jets as they fly across the sky but this was moving much faster. I do not think you would expect to see a stobe light on a jet at 30,000 feet, definately not as bright as this one.
