|Orange glowing object following small white object
My son and I were at our cottage approx. outside of Haliburton, Ontario, Canada (44.931395,-78.359449). We were out on the dock facing NNE at approx 22:50 on July 4th, 2010.
Roughly 60 degrees above the horizon, to the NNE, we noticed a large orange orb (mag of at least -8) moving across the sky from a north to south direction. Looking closer we also noticed an other smaller object, white in color in front of the orange object. The smaller object was visually typical of a satellite with a mag. of +4 or more, barely visible. I was intrigued as it was not the space station as it would pass on the Southerly horizon.
Mid way across the sky the two object disappeared. This was also not a meteor as the two objects appeared to move much slower than a meteor. There was no sound.
