Round grey object flying over camp fire in the night sky
I was by the campfire with my son when I saw a moving star. I thought I’d use this time to educate my son on satellites in the sky and how the look like moving stars. After watching for a few seconds I told my son somthing is different. It started to look larger, brighter and closer. Then it looked like it was slightly moving with added light behind it. It still was moving slowly like a satellite or weather balloon in one direction across the sky with no crazy up and down or side to side movements. But somthing was really different about its look that I’d never seen before in the night sky. I started to get intrigued and grabbed my IPhone to capture on video. At this point it had passed over us and caught the second half of flight. I started to record and was even more amazed when I zoomed in as it looked like a grey cylinder object. From the video it looked like it was moving, but that was just my movements filming. It stayed it’s constant course from what ! I could tell, but seemed closer than I thought when I zoomed in and out. Then it just disappeared when it traveled at a distance my phone wouldn’t pick up anymore.
