Location: Johnstown, CO
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Steadily flashing light traversed the sky at a rate similar to that of a meteor, making no sound.

I was out watching the meteor shower Sunday night. I saw what I thought at first was a dim, yellowish, short-lived meteor straight up (near Vega) tracking north-northwest, and I didn't think much of it.

I then saw a similar flash that looked like another small meteor but on the same trajectory as the first. I thought both of these were small dim meteors as they were moving across the sky at a speed consistent with a meteor (far faster than any satellite or plane that I've seen). I then saw a third fourth and fifth flash that spanned equally short distances of the sky on this trajectory (it appeared to vere slightly right during the fourth flash). The object traversed about 30 degrees of sky in about 5 seconds before going out of view. It made no sound.
