Strange light, stranger disappearance

I'm unsure of the date, but it was when the Hale/Bopp comet (I think that's the one) was appearing in the night sky. My husband brought me out to see the comet since by then I needed assistance walking. We were standing out in the cold, looking up at the comet when we noticed a light moving quietly in the clear sky. We knew it was definitely not a plane when we saw how it was moving. It seemed to be tumbling. Sort of like rolling dice but slowly and absolutely silent. We watched for about 4 minutes when suddenly a light shone near the object. The light came on like a flashlight and then in an instant, both lights were gone. My husband and I looked at each other in astonishment and asked at the same time, "Did you see that???"

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witnesses might have observed a tumbling rocket shell in orbit. One of several reports from the same source. We have spoken with her via telephone, and she sounds quite credible to us. PD))
