|Large object in north to south orbit
At 3:55am on the morning of June 6 2007 I stepped outside to let the dog out. Looking almost straight up a little to the west, I saw a light of a small oval shape appear.
I have seen the small speck of satellites travel across the sky in a dark rural area, but this was in an urban area with alot of light pollution, and the light was of an order of several hundred times bigger than a sattelite.
The object appeared about 20 degrees to the right of straight up then continued until about 45 degrees past straight up, and was travelling from north to south.
I don't believe the light was from the object, but a reflection off of it. There may have been some trailing of light or this may have just been ghosting.
I have never seen anything like this and am curious about what it was. This was viewed from about 20 miles west of the city of St.Louis, MO.
