National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 6/24/2000 21:44 (Entered as : 06/24/00 21:44)
Reported: 6/24/2000 20:22
Posted: 7/11/2000
Location: Olathe, KS
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A bright light was observed going from south to north. It flased 4-5 times when first seen, stopped flashing then disappeared.

I was sitting outside my house looking south. I have a clear view starting at about 30-40 degrees above the horizon to 90 degrees. On the south are some trees and on the north is the backside of my house. I was sitting looking straight up and saw a faint light that flashed on 4-5 times in quick succession. The light came from the south and was going north at a very fast rate of speed. It appeared to be outside of the atmosphere based on brightness, speed, no sound. I frequently see a satellite going along a similar path at night but this was not the same. The first sighting was at 21:44 approximately. About 4-5 minutes later I saw what I thought was the satellite going in the same direction south to north but on a somewhat different path. It appeared much brighter than the other object but not different in appearance than it usually does when I see it. However it did appear to be moving much faster than it usually does.
