Full Description & Details
I was about 9 or 10 and at a cub scout camp out, a group of us decided to sleep under the stars. Being away from the city the stars were very vivid and we were even able to see what we believe were sattelites. As I laid there I was watching a Sattelite that was travelling a bit faster than anything else we had seen in they sky. As I was tracking it I thought I lost view of it because it suddenly stopped moving. I continued to watch the light that I thought was my sattelite. As I stared at the object it got a tiny bit brighter then made a perfect 90 degree change in direction from what it had been traveling then accelerated very quickly out of sight. My friend laying next to me blurted out "did you see that?" and at least two other scouts said they had. And as we discussed we al saw the exact same thing.
I have two vo-tech degrees, one in automotive one in HVAC three years of college. I managed an independent Good year store for 3 years was a mechanic for 10 years and now work for the Kansas Dept of Transportation doing Traffic Control.
