I was 13 years old spending my summer vacation from school at my Parents cottage in a remote area south of Collingwood, Ontario Canada. This is at the highest old mountain range in Ontario called the Blue Mountains. At that time, I had no other friends to play with and I used to wander off into the woods with my 22 Rifle playing Daniel Boon. The exact date, I cannot remember anymore, but it was one of those hot still bright summer nights that I was out and I was sitting down just looking at the stars. I was looking North, North West. At this time, in a cloud less perfect star viewing night, with millions of stars above me, I noticed a bright blue Object that I believe was a satellite, traveling in a South East direction directly overhead of me. Satellites were known at this time and I often had seen them before. This time however, the Satellite was being followed directly behind at a distance of, looking up, one quarter of an inch. The following object was also blue in colour but about one quarter in size and was dimmer. I watched these two objects until they passed out site still heading south east. In my opinion, these objects were in near space, and were not aircraft. I am now 52 years old, an outdoorsman, and a stargazer. I have seen many satellites since, but never one being followed.
