|Object that vanishes quickly into space.
I looked up at the big dipper and noticed a double star in Beta Majoris. It was unusual then it moved and I thougt it was a high flying aircraft, but it make a slightly arced trajectory around the star from the east and then headed due south.
After looking at it for another ten seconds, it grew fainter and smaller and redder and then vanished. I can only think it red shifted and went into outer space. But it did so in the course of a second or two which would mean that it was traveling faster than anything know on earth.
I'm a skeptic and a pragmatist, but I don't have an explanation for this one. What did I see?
I am an amateur astronomer and long-time stargazer. I know my night sky and mathematics as well. I didn't know who else to contact. I know it might not seem that fantastic compared to some of the things you hear, but it's real and strange all the same.
