Location: Metairie, LA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Watched high altitude plane follow a bright ball of light SE across the sky.

Near Louis Armstrong International Airport, there was a high orbit bright ball of light. Thought it was a star, at first, then noticed it was moving.

About 15-20 seconds later a high altitude plane was following it. It was heading SE towards Old Metairie. It was not headbeam reflection.

It was two distinct craft, the craft, and the plane following it. If you've ever seen a satellite fly over, that's what it appeared to be in shape/size/brightness.
