STAR LIKE OBJECT TRAVELING ACROSS THE SKY. STOPPED AND SUDDENLY WINKED OUT.

MY GIRL FRIEND AND MY SELF WERE ON HER DECK AT HER HOME IN EDMONDS WASHINGTON OCTOBER 29TH., 2010. WE ARE INTERESTED IN ASTRONOMY AND TONITE WHILE LOOKING AT THE STARS SHE POINTED TO A STAR LIKE OBJECT AND MENTIONED COULD THAT BE A SATELITE?

I SAID YES, IT WAS TRAVELLING PRETTY FAST. BUT THEN I REALIZED TO FAST TO BE A SATELITE, MUTCH, MUTCH TO SLOW TO BE A COMET OR METEORITE. IT TRAVERSED THE SKY A GOOD DISTANCE (HALF THE SKY'S ASMUTH), IN A STRAIGHT LINE THEN STOPPED. WHEN IT STOPPED IT SEEMED TO CHANGE COLORS (IT WAS AS IF LIKE LOOKING AT BINARY STAR), AND THEN WINKED OUT.

I WATCHED A HIGH FLYING PLANE IN THE AREA TRACE THE SIMILAR FLIGHT PATH TO DETERMINE IF PERHAPS SOME CLOUD COVER CAUSED THE SUDDEN DISSAPEARENCE. IT REMAINED VISIBLE DURING ITS FLIGHT PATH AT WHAT I ASSUMED TO BE A RELATIVELY SIMILAR HIGH ALTITUDE.

THE WEATHER FOR TONITE HAS BEEN CLEAR WITH STARS VISIBLE TO SOMEWHAT CLOUDY. THE AREA THE THE UFO DISAPEARED IN WAS CLEAR OPEN SKY. I HOPE WHAT WE SAW MIGHT HAVE BEEN VIEWED BY OTHERS IN OUR HEMISPHERE. I ENJOY ASTRONOMY AND FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT IN IDENTIFYING CELESTIAL BODIES HOWEVER TONITE I HAVE NO EXPLANATION TO WHAT WE BOTH WITNESSED.
