|Flashes of light with smaller lights about level of where satellites orbi
Date of occurrence: September 22, 2007, between 9:15 PM and 10:05 PM CST I saw the most amazing sight last night while lying out and watching the stars. I witnessed it between 9:15 PM CST and 10:05 PM CST. As I looked up I saw an object fly into my line of sight at about the level I've seen satellites. As I watched it, it moved erratically in short bursts until it semi settled into a particular part of the sky. Not being an astronomer, I can't tell you which part nor the longitude and latitude.
As I watched it, I noticed that there were very large spokes of light emanating from it in all directions. Sometimes there would be flashes. There were also smaller lights flying into and out of the larger light. It stayed in position for quite a while moving erratically at times and only for short distances. It was amazing, I didn’t want to take my eyes off of it, but I wanted my binoculars. I went in to get them and when I came back out it was gone, of course.
