Bright light flew bye, then blasts off into to the distant atmosphere.

Completely clear sky, it’s getting dark early now here and I could already see the stars incredibly. At home I had gone into my backyard, while out there I noticed one of my daughters window shades was still open (the roll up shade kind and her curtains were pulled shut)(my wife was putting our daughters to bed), I turned around to head back inside to close it. On my way back inside I noticed a seriously bright light travelling along from west to east. I thought it was a plane as this is a very common route that I see planes fly all the time, Windsor airport is west of here and the Detroit airport is west of that.

I went in to close the roll up shade, my wife told me it broke, (the chain had slipped off, so I took maybe 2-3 minutes to get it back on and said good night to my daughters again. Then I went back outside to do what I originally went there to do.

As soon as I went outside I looked up toward the north and that bright light was still travelling along from west to east. I thought that’s weird, the lights are usually only on the front of planes as they head towards me.

I typically look at the sky almost every night, especially when it’s clear and you can see the stars. Over the recent years I’ve seen shooting stars, planets, meteor showers, all different kinds of stages of the moon (blood moons recently, they were reported to be due to forest fire smoke and said to be not true blood moons, buck moon (which that same night I saw it, it was like a blood moon and buck moon), and all sorts of other moon stages), satellites, planes, a drone and even a guy flying a chair with one of those big kite surfing kites over him and a big fan on the back… but until now the craziest thing I saw (only two different times) was that Elon star link system. It was creepy, but even that I could rationalize was something because it floats by consistently and the spacing looked strangely perfect, I looked it up and that’s when I learned about what that is. BUT this is why I’m struggling with what I saw, I’m questioning myself wether this is some kind of space x, ! Elon, space force thing that I don’t know about yet. I’m always looking up at the sky, almost every night with the aspirations to spot a UFO or a shooting star, or anything interesting! I love looking at the stars whenever I can, it humbles me.

It was weird how bright it was and there was no flashing lights(planes usually always have flashing lights, often green and red) I thought maybe something over the lake (possibly a helicopter doing another search and rescue) …but no. It travelled west to east over Lake St.Clair. A few minutes later it just took off super fast to the east, like a shooting star! There was what looked like a mini explosion, what a firework looks like when it takes off, like some sparks shooting away from where it blasted off from. Then it had like a trail of light following it out into the sky and i noticed it curved at the end. It looked just like what a shooting star looks like when they’re hitting the atmosphere and burning up, like an orange burning glow. It looked like the craft went up to the upper atmosphere and then followed the contour of the earth down and around. It happened in a second, which is one of the main reasons I don’t think it was anything from our planet. I’ve never seen ! anything fly like that before. Also it was silent, no plane noise, no helicopter sound and no boom when it took off either.

I kept on checking the sky for several minutes after that and I think I did actually spot a satellite or space junk after that, because there was something else that looked like it was moving way up high, like a lot higher than the UFO light… this one was just black looking and floated by steadily, like a shadow blocking stars, that travelled from south to north.
