|Orbital Object overtakes Space Station at incredible speed
While watching the Space station pass over St. John's Newfoundland at 21:40, we saw a smaller, white object, traveling at a much greater rate of speed,appear to first chase and then pass the Space station as it moved off to the East.It appeared to be an orbital object. It appeared to reflect sunlight ,and there were intermitant flashes of light similar to a tumbling satellite, however the speed was remarkable, much faster than a satellite and certainly much faster than the Space Station.
