Location: Bellingham, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
Looked like a standard satellite in orbit that suddenly became larger took on a very bright yellow glow, faded and changed direction.

We were sitting on the deck just after midnight. Very clear skies, observing stars. Spotted what appeared to be a satellite, very high up, moving from south to northeast. Observed for several seconds.

Object suddenly lit up very brightly, a yellow white light, lasted for several seconds then went back to the pale light it was when first sighted and took a sharp turn west and disappeared.

Neither of us have ever seen anything like it.

No we weren't drunk or stoned.

If I didn't think it was quite remarkable, I wouldn't have bothered to find this website and write this report.
