Shape: Light
Duration:2 min.
bright light moving slow.

my wife and i were walking south on the beach and noticed a moving point of light in SW night sky. it moved from the SW to NE.kind of slow but no blinking lights like an airplane. occasionaly the object would slow down an then speed up but nothing drastic. when the light got directly overhead it got significantly brighter. this forced us to look closer. a plane went by at several thousand feet and its lights were easily recognized. we thought it might be a satellite but it moved in an irregular manner and seemed to be moving to slow. i guess it's still a possibility that it was "sputnik" or something. after 2 minutes or so the object disappeared in NE sky without any incident.
