Duration: 5 min
No of observers: 1

Location: El Paso, TX, USA

Shape: Light

SUMMARY: Saw light travelling across sky

I saw a white light at very high altitude travelling across the sky.I thought it was a satellite until it made a sharp 90 degree turn. I have seen MIR and what I saw back in 1980 looked just like it.The only thing I can't explain is the sharp 90 degree turn. It could have been an ICBM launched from nearby White Sands Missle range with a target at a Nevada test range. This was common back then and may still be.
