Bright Flashing Lights?
By an edhat reader
Last night at approximately 9pm (perhaps a bit before), while I was outside searching for my cat, I noticed a series of sporadic bright white concentrated flashes in the slightly north sky overhead. I am aware that satellites rotate and reflect the sunlight in well-timed flashes as they race across the sky, but these flashes ranged from dull to very bright (like an explosion). Nothing was audible.
They were not low altitude, so naturally I initially suspected a rotating satellite. The only thing is that it seemingly changed direction from heading east to northwest to north and then west to east. Once I discounted a satellite, I raced inside and got my family. They all witness this as well. Eventually it headed east and eventually faded out of sight. Anyone see this?
