|Appearing As A Shooting Star
Was observing departing commercial aircraft from (MSP) Minneapolis/St.Paul Intl.
Had my eye fixed on a departure about 50 miles out WSW that was at around 10,000 ft. altitude.
Object initially was believed to be a meteorite falling at a 45 degree angle south to north. Fading while falling this object took a rounded left turn just above the cloud deck. T hen the object turned fast (rounded) right and then fast (rounded) left. Then the object took a turn upward and faded.
All the while I wondered if the commercial airline pilots had witnessed it as well.
