|High bright object transverses Atlanta skyline
A single bright light traveling from the NE skyline to the SW skyline. Object was higher than the ATL air traffic pattern to the west. Object showed constant brightness throughout its trajectory with a constant speed. There were "No" port/starboard lights or flashing lights. Nearly as bright as Venus in the East. Had a slight wobble. At the overhead midpoint, another small dark object that flashed "on" then "off" intermittently, bisected the path of the first object at a more westerly flight path and lower in height. The second object was moving at a high rate of speed and was visible for only seconds.
I am outside every night between 2200 and 2230 to let the dogs out and study the night sky and the ATL flight paths. Objects were not in any flight path to ATL. I am a ten year Navy Veteran Shipboard Signalman. I have seen satellites at night track from horizon to horizon in the middle of the ocean. I have seen other strange lights track in the dark ocean sky. I was surprised to see one here in the city of Atlanta.
((NUFORC Note: Venus currently is in the western evening sky. Jupiter is in the southeast. PD))
