|Two White Star-like Shapes
I woke up this morning and went down stairs for a cup of coffee and a cigarette. When I went outside, I heard an airplane flying over head, and looked up to see it. I then noticed a white balloon behind it. This balloon did not keep up with the airplane, and moved SW very slowly.
I then noticed it was heading for another white balloon in its path. I went into my house to get my dad's pair of binoculars and went back outside. I located them again, and when I looked through the binoculars I noticed a red/orange round shape between them. I then realized that the two white balloons were actually reflecting the sunlight, and thought they looked more like stars.
My mom came out on the porch and I pointed them out to her. She had to go to work and that was at 10:05 am. I had been watching them for fifteen minutes now, but after I said goodbye I looked back up and the one that was heading towards the other was now moving in the oppisite direction. I followed it for a minute and then looked up at it without the binoculars and could not see it. When I looked through the binoculars it was gone.
I kept watching the sky, but the clouds rolled in and there was no chance of seeing it again. I now there was a shuttle launch early this morning and that it was delivering a piece of the space station. I was not going to think twice about it until I saw them move away from each other, and thought that was very strange. I went to the NASA website to see the launch, and found that the red/orange object couldn't be the tank, because that falls off ten minutes in to the flight. This took place six hours later..
