Location: Fort Walton Beach, FL
|Bright light and dim object observed north of Fort Walton Beach.
While walking dog at 0045 hours, observed a very bright white light about 20 degrees above the horizon to the north, trailed by a dim object moving to the north or NE. Lead object was extremely bright, no evidence of flashing anti-collision lights. I would estimate they were 20-30 miles away.
Lead object brightness faded out after ten or so seconds; trailing object remained dim.
Verified it was not ISS, nor any apparent satellites passing over (GPS 16 made a pass about that time, however these were two distinct objects). I’ve seen past ISS flyovers, but the lead object was extremely bright until it faded, and there was no evidence of military activity at the time.
