Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
i tracked 2 objects flying high from n.w to s.e., when the lead object emmited a brillient light, much brighter than an airplane strobe light, not a meteor, and not a reflection from the sun (because the second light did not 'light up').......and they just vanished. several minutes later another light was seen tracking on the same heading but vanished with out any flash.

((NUFORC Note: Report is not inconsistent with observation of a satellite with fluctuating brightness. Satellites disappear from sight when they fly into the shadow of the earth, aka the terminater.))
