|Strange Yellow White Light in the sky
8/19/04 10:29 PST My husband and I were sitting outside talking and happened to look up to the North East when we saw what we thought was a sattelite. The strange thing was that it suddenly got very bright, brighter than any star in the sky, yellow/white light, for maybe a second then it dimmed and continued for a brief couple of seconds then disappeared. I know what you're thinking, and it was not a shooting star. I have never seen a shooting star dim then get really bright then dim and disappear.
((NUFORC Note: Flare from Iridium satellite. PD))
