On March 23, 2000 I was looking at the Big Dipper when one of the stars near the Big Dipper blinked then i saw dull orange lights coming from the East and then turning north as it turned north. I was able to see in my telescope for about 20 seconds

The eastern sky was bright because of the big dipper when one of the stars blinked to the right of the big dipper then a black rectangular object with dull orange lights appeared coming from the east. After approximately 5 seconds it banked to the north passing in front of the stars of the big dipper also when it turned north i was able to get my telescope on it and follow it until it went out of sight. Right before it went out of sight it made a big leap in speed
