|Red/Green orb seen through telescope, tracked from Jupiter W/SW to horizon at incredible speed
Went stargazing with a friend last night (3/25/15) at Lake Bryan outside of College Station. While using my Celestron Astromaster 114 with 32mm fully coated eyepiece, I was focused in on Jupiter for a minute or so, when a red/green alternating orb flew across my field of view.
I then followed this object, which moved at incredible speed, west (Jupiter was in south sky) until cloud cover prohibited seeing object.
What drew my attention was its curving motion and abrupt changes in speed, from close to a dead stop to full speed almost instantaneously.
The speed of this object was far greater than any aircraft/satellite and could not be seen by naked eye, only through telescope.
