|Bright flash traveling North by Southeast
During the evening of the lunar eclipse my brother and I witnessed a large flash of light. We were standing on the front porch of my house watching the eclipse. We were looking at other stars and noticed Orion. I was also talking to my friend making sure he was looking at the eclipse when I told my brother to check "that" out.
In between Orion and the moon almost directly overhead what appeared to be a star went from dim to BRIGHT flash to dim all withen approx 10 seconds. It was moving North by Southeast. It did not appear to be an airplane it was way to high. There are alot of planes here due to local airport and SeaTac but this was not a plane.
((NUFORC Note: Possible flare from Iridium satellite? PD))
