Bright, fast moving "star" heading east over Birch Lake RV Park in Babbitt, MN.

Around 11pm on June 24th, we were all sitting around a campfire when I looked up and saw a very bright "star" moving east very fast. I have been camping for 30 years and have always looked up in the night sky and have seen satellites go by, but never this fast or this bright.

Everyone else I was with said it was a satellite, but I wasn't convinced. Where there any satellites over Babbitt, MN, on this night, or did I witness something else?

I witnessed a large fireball object in an open field about five years ago, while we were stopped waiting for a train to pass, so now I'm on the look out for such things constantly.
