On Tuesday night, August 3rd, 1999, my husband, a friend and I were watching for satelites about 10:45 PM. We noticed an object appear in the west moving very fast in a south easterly direction. It was not a satelite, as we watch them nightly. It was dish shaped object, and did not appear to have lights on it, just somewhat of a white glow in the clear sky. We watched it go as far south as we could see. It was a very clear night and the object was very easy to see. This could not have been a plane as it was traveling too fast ....and we do not believe it was a satelite as it was lower than any satelite we have seen and there was no reflection like you see with satelites. There was no sound at all, just a vaporlike glow to an otherwise solid object.
