Location: Bangor, PA
Shape: Light
Duration: 45 seconds
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
Single light [which I thought was a satellite] passing west of Altair moving north slowly towards Lacerta, split into two lights. One traveling in the opposite direction towards Delphinus. The light traveling north blinks out after 10 seconds. The second moves in a erratic pattern, blinking out between Saturn and Jupiter. Sighting lasted about 1 minute. I have been using telescopes since 1974. I have witnessed the space station, space shuttle and various satellites over the years. This never happened before and I was compelled to record the event. I was with my wife, who also witnessed the event.
