Twin satellites moving together and one shoots off in to space

In July 2007 my wife and I were sitting in a field in eastern Washington state late one warm crystal clear night and I was staring up at the stars and noticed what I thought were a couple of orbiting satellites that were travelling in the same direction and fairly close to each other as far as satellites go. I mentioned it to my wife and she looked up and she saw what I saw. What appeared to be two Sat’s moving in the same direction and very close to each other. She turned away and just said, "What a coincidence that has to be a million to one chance to see that in the sky."

I continued to watch and noticed that both of them stopped at the same time and same spot in the sky side by side. They stayed in that position for about a minute or longer. They didn't drift the entire time I was watching. They appeared to be fixed in one position together. They had the same brightness of orbiting Sat’s, no blinking lights or changing colors. I said to my wife, "Lookup the two Sat’s have stopped."

She looked up just in time to see one of them shoot off into space in a blink of an eye. There was no streak of light like a meteor entering our atmosphere just a bright ball heading off in to the darkness of space. The other Sat resumed on its original course from the Northwest to the Southeast. I have seen a lot of Sat’s in my day but I would have to be hard pressed to say that those two bright balls of light were your average Sat’s.

We are your average people, I believe that there is something out there my wife does not. But she was shocked at what we saw that night.
