|I was outside about 10:15 pm and was watching the skies and I noticed a bright "light" (about 4 times brighter than the brightest star).
I was outside about 10:15 pm and was watching the skies, and I noticed a bright "light" (about 4 times brighter than the brightest star), moving silently, from west to east. It was moving as fast or a bit faster than a normal plane. It lasted about 3 minutes.
After the "light" was no longer visible, I saw 2 planes or helicopters (flashing red & blue lights-still no sound) that appeared together in the same area of the sky that the light flew to. They moved somewhat together flying to the south. Not sure if there is any connection. I would really like to know what this could be. I checked the ISS website to see if it was over my area at that time, but it was far away and nowhere near me.
I watch the skies at night a lot and have often seen dim "star" like lights moving across the sky which I always assume are satellites. But this "light" was much, much different. I have seen something like this once before, about a year ago in the same location. At this time the bright "light" was being followed by lights that looked like a plane.
