Duration: 2 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: Altoona, IA, USA

Shape: Circle

Star like object solid light travelling NW 2137-2139. It flew over a normal plane travelling at regular altitude speed that was heading SW. The ISS is currently east of Africa over the ocean. I know there are more satellites but this was bright, traveling quickly, and seems to be much higher than a plane travelling @ several thousand feet. Interested in seeing what this was. I've reported a similar sighting to mufon Iowa, but the report system there isn't working. Large circle, bright as a star, slightly larger than the brightest stars you will see in the night sky, and appears to look like it's floating, almost to flying in a perfectly straight path. Never changed direction, probably a satellite, but still very cool.
