Duration:35 seconds
Bright light over west Omaha at 11:45pm Oct. 5th.

Friday night on October 5th. I was driving home from a friends house and was traveling south on I-680. At about 11:45pm I was just about up to the Dodge Street exit when I noticed an extremely bright blue white light low in the sky. This object had no tail or contrail and was moving way to quickly to be an aircraft in a tower controlled airspace (TCA). I saw none of the red or green lights associated with conventional aircraft either. The object appeared to fly over the interstate then pitched up a bit before it went completely dark. I raced home and checked the Heavens-above website for any satellite or ISS overflights of the area at that time. I could find nothing flying over Omaha for that time period.

I was able to see the ISS flying overhead at about 7:40pm on Saturday night October 6th. It was not anywhere near as bright nor was it moving as fast as the object I had seen the night before. I reported the friday night sighting to a friend who is a MUFON investigator and he suggested I also send a report to this website.
