Location: Lake Charles, LA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
I only observed a single point of light. It was traveling north to south. It was located north of the handle of the big dipper. Then it just vanished. There were no strobe lights or other colored lights. I was curious if it was a satilite, or an asteroid? I didn't think satilites went north to south. It was only visible for a few seconds, then it just vanished. It didn't appear to be in the atmosphere, but further out in space.
