Location: Escondido, CA
Shape: Diamond
Duration:2 minutes
Thought it was a satellite moving across the sky until it went straight out of the sky till we could not see it anymore.

5-10 minutes before a meteor shower we thought we saw a satellite moving across the sky about half way/straight up, it just shot straight out into the sky till we could not see the star/satellite anymore. it changed direction in an instant! we also noticed that when it moved past stars it seemed to diminish the stars light and as soon as it passed the stars were bright again. very weird.
