Sighting Report
Occurred : 11/18/2002 04:00 (Entered as : 11/19/2002 4:00)
Reported: 3/17/2004 12:05:53 PM 12:05
Posted: 3/17/2004
Location: Lake Arrowhead, CA
Shape: Unknown
Duration:15-20 seconds
I had been watching the 2002 Leonid meteor shower. I came back home about 3:15-3:30 a.m. and turned on the NASA TV live broadcast of the meteor shower. I had been taping it for my kids so they'd have a record of the tremendous shower.

As I watched the live broadcast, a bright dot like a satellite appeared on the TV screen. "Cool!" I thought, "they caught a satellite on the broadcast." The "satellite," moving slowly, then proceeded to change directions on a few occasions before moving out of the range of the camera.

Anybody else see this or tape the event?

Unfortunately, my home burned in the October 29, 2003 fires in Lake Arrowhead, CA, and I lost virtually everything, including the videotape of this mysterious object. I'd love to know if anyone else saw this/taped this/has a copy of the tape. Pretty hard to fake a live broadcast from NASA, you know?

((NUFORC Note: One of two similar reports from same witness. We believe that the correct date for the dramatic Leonid meteor shower, as indicated above, was November 18, 2002. He indicated 2001 in the original report, and we have amended that report to 2002. PD))
