Duration:~1 min
Star-like object over Red Wing, MN

Conversating, star gazing, and having a bonfire like we usually do. A bright star catches my eye. It's beaming white like a bright 8 point star, then it starts to move in a straight horizontal or slightly curved path. The object had the brightness of multiple stars. It looked like it was about the altitude of a light aircraft.

We watched it for at least a minute until we lost visual as it crossed over the tree line. The object had no sound, and moved at speeds of a light aircraft. Roughly 10 minutes later it appeared in the same general area we originally saw it, and disappeared within a second.

It looked like the light blinked or ingulfed.

About an hour later it showed up in a different location, blinked, then you could see an object trailing like a satellite.

We saw it 1 more time blink above us around 1 AM and called it a night.
