|silent bright light headed east- big and sort of orange. steady speed.
bright almost orange light, no sound and big. big as my pinky nail held at arms length. heading east. completely silent- i kept waiting for a sound but there was nothing. there is no moon tonight (or at least at that time) so the sky was beautiful and full of stars. I needed to put the chickens away for the night and was pretty late with the chore, usually they are put to bed right after dusk, but i was late.
I couldn't help but stop and look at the stars for a little while before walking back home up the driveway. then this light was there and was nothing like i have seen before. i see planes going to Bellingham and planes going in all directions from there and from Anacortes also, so i know what the planes look like, even if there is no sound. this was no plane. solid light. i know what satellites look like too because i like watching them skim by. but this thing was big and really bright and was in control. I dont know, mabe it was the ISS or something. It was NOT a plane or a hellicopter, and seemed too big to just be in orbit. real odd.
