Location: Albuquerque, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
a very birght and steady light at high altitude moving from south to north over Albuquerque, NM at a high rate of speed.

appeared to be a passing satellite from south to north. azimuth about 85 degrees from Albuquerque looking to the east. first saw south of my position. steady movement like a satellite. this one appeared to be moving at a higher rate and when it was about 45 - 35 degrees azimuth from my position looking north, appeared to have a small tail and possibly changing vector and speed slightly. the other peculiar observation is it appeared to be extremely bright on all sides. there is no way this was an aircraft in our normal operating atmosphere. it could have possibly been a satellite, but the extreme light made me think that it was something else.
