Posted: 9/9/2003
Location: Sedro-Woolley, WA
Shape: Flash
Duration:1 minute
At approximately 21:40 hours, saw a BRIGHT flashing light almost directly overhead in the area of the top of the northern cross, which proceeded in a northwesterly direction at a constant rate of speed I commonly associate with a satellite. The first two flashes were brighter than any star in the sky, and approached the brightness of Mars in the eastern sky. The object covered approximately 10-15 degrees of sky in about a minute, before the flashes, which grew steadily fainter over time, became invisible to the naked eye. The time between the flashes was several seconds, and occurred at irregular intervals.
