|Golden round light flying quietly, small side balls blinked
Last night I had stepped outside to get water for the cat, about 7 pm and was looking up admiring the moon and a few stars in the evening sky. It wasn't completely dark yet. I noticed a round shaped golden light coming toward me from the north, heading south, and I watched its progress until trees got in the way. At first I just thought it was a plane, but it looked too big, because I couldn't hear a sound from it. I saw two little balls of light blink on and off along the sides a couple times, they were white. I thought planes had colored lights.
I ran to keep sight of it, and saw it again. I expected to be able to see it disappear in the distance, growing smaller. Instead it disappeared instantly. By that time I was wondering what it was. I am familiar with satellites, have seen several flying over here. This was visually larger and and maybe a little slower. Wild guess at altitude would be 3000 feet.
