Location: Mineral Point, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
The stars were very bright. There were no clouds. I was watching a sattelite moving through the sky southwest. When it reached the treeline I noticed another "star" moving north at a very high rate of speed. It was not a constant light, but more of a pulsing light. The best way I can describe it was like a knife being thrown. It tumbled end over end. It was very high in the sky, seemed to be in space. As it zipped through space i would loose sight of it, but following its trajectory I could pick it up. It was moving way too fast and high to be conventional aircraft. I followed it till it disappeared. It seems to slow down at times then pick up speed very quickly.
