|Orbital Sighting Not Satellite or Meteor
Was waiting for the International Space Station Pass to start at 22:05. Just after the ISS was to hit 10 deg alt, a steady light (sun reflected) passed from NW to E at a high rate of speed. The light moved faster than an unpowered satellite and was not a meteor. There was a thin overcast of clouds but the craft still reflected at about 2 magnitude with only a couple of stars showing. The ISS followed on time and looked normal.
((NUFORC Note: One of two sighting reports from same source. PD))
