Duration:20 seconds
I work nights and quite often see things in the sky but usually shrug them off as satellites or high flying planes.This morning at approx. 1 am. I was scanning the skys as usual and saw a bright whiteish blue light stationary in the north eastern sky. I thought it was a star but did a double take as it was barely moving. As soon as I got a good fix on it it suddenly drifted straight up, and within ten seconds I could not find it anymore.Before I lost sight of it I am pretty sure it changed to an orangish color. 1. Satellites do not go up, 2.no plane I know of can shoot straight up like that. 3. too fast for a balloon. Anyone else see something like this?
