|Satellite-like fireball object traces sky then deminishes to faint moving light
My girlfriend and myself were out camping about 45 minutes away from Cranbrook, in the Koocanusa area. At approximately 11:15 PM, I was out of our tent, watching the night sky, and enjoying the calm of the night.
As I took my eyes off the sky for a slight moment, I noticed an abnormally bright light in my peripheral vision. I gazed to night sky and followed this bright light trace the sky for about 5 seconds before the light diminished. After dininishing, the light tracing the sky was as dim as an average satellite, still tracing the sky.
Questioning what I had witnessed I turned to my girlfriend, who at the time was reading a book in our tent with the door wide open, and asked if she saw the object that I had just seen. She stated that indeed she had seen it in the same manner that I had. She had seen the abnormal bright light out of her peripheral vision while reading, then continued to follow the object until it had diminished to a distant light tracing the sky.
