|Bright object in sky moving east
At approximately 9:20 pm (21:20) we witnessed a bright object in the Big Dipper constellation moving south-southeast at a slow steady pace. It was very luminescent as it passed overhead and slowly arced to due east as it passed overhead. It traveled until it disappeared, it’s brightness dimming the farther away it got from our point of observation. I happened to have our Pentax K200d SLR camera out testing it for night shooting and took three 7 second exposures of the object before it went out of sight. You can clearly see the stars as stationary, but the object itself is moving and therefore leaving streaks in the pictures. I am including the images for you full size (approximately 3.5 Mb’s) for potential analysis if you wish.
((NUFORC Note: Probably a sighting of the ISS. PD))
