Shape: Flash
Duration:1 minute
Bright flash of light for a few seconds in Loveland, CO.

I was having a get-together with my family in Loveland, CO Saturday night. We were all sitting outside watching the sky because I told my family about the upcoming meteor shower. We noticed a couple of satellites flying by overhead that intrigued everyone. After a while I caught another one flying straight over-head so I pointed it out to the rest of us. We watched it zooming over for a minute when it flashed a light like it was shining a spotlight into our eyes which lasted for a few seconds then went dim again. We all freaked out about it and were talking up a storm about it. My brother who just got out of the Air Force flew satellites in Colorado Springs and was pretty sure that wasn't a satellite reflecting the sun back to us. It was a very strange event and I thought I should report it. I'm not sure who else has seen this same thing but I'm sure someone else had to of.
