|Early morning sighting of glowing blue object that dead falls, stops, then moves due north at an incredible speed
While walking our beagle early Friday morning, I was looking skyward, almost due north.
At about 80 degrees up in the sky, I immediately noticed a "star", medium in size, glowing blue...a shade or 2 darker than a "robin's egg" hue.
I use the term "glowing" because the quality of the light it gave off was not reflected, nor was it incandescent...it was not "twinkly". It was a glow.
It stood out to me because of the quality of light and the unusual color.
As I watched it, it moved slightly in a very minimal southerly direction. The it stopped, and after a couple of seconds it did something that truly took my breath.
It dropped, straight down, in a dead fall, at quite a fast speed.
Of course, it was so high up that it never did have a great deal of detail in its appearance, remaining a glowing blue medium star size object...but it dropped from about 80 degrees up, to approximately 30 degrees above the horizon.
And then it stopped...sat seemingly motionless for a few seconds at that 30 degree level...then took off at an incredible speed, heading due north.
The whole event lasted approximately 30 seconds or so.
