Location: Cherry Spring, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
light crosses sky in 4-5 seconds

We were observing the night sky at Cherry Springs Park, an official dark skies astronomy state park.

We observed many satellites that night. However, we saw a light, whose size and appearance resembled a satellite. It was a tiny speck going across the sky, about 40 degrees up.

The strange part is that I have NEVER seen a satellite cross the sky as fast as this did. It crossed the entire sky in a matter of 4 to 5 seconds from north to south.

I have seen meteors, satellites, the space station. Again, I have never seen anything cross the sky so fast.

Wondering what it could have been...
