saw something in the sky last night..

Last night, September 9th, 2009 bewtween 9 and 10pm we were unloading my friends thunder car at the engine builders in Port Perry.

After unloading we sat around the parking lot had a few beers and a few smokes. Someone noticed something moving in the sky, which was definately not a plane, (because there was already one in sight )

This "object" shone just like a star, and moved faster than a plane. The object came right across the sky,with what looked like a tail of something behind it . It did not blink or have any other lights, just bright like a star.

following behind it in what looked like the same path was another object, travelling the same speed headed towards across the sky in the same direction.

The first star made it way towards the big dipper and then faded into the sky and wasnt seen again, still following in its footsteps, the other object did the same, i made sure to relocate myself where i would see it at all times and just as it neared the big dipper it faded away until it was gone.

In total we could probally visibly see the objects for a minute or two as they spanned silently across the sky, which had not a single cloud.

I know this all sounds like bullshit, but there were about 8 of us who saw it, so when i woke up this morning i did a little research on the net and found a link.. i guess i wasnt the only one who'd seen it.

sorry for wasting your time.

Yes, what you saw was the space shuttle and the international space station. They've been visible together for the last couple of nights since the shuttle disconnected from the ISS. I watched them on Tuesday.

Ya it's the coolest thing... just before or after the space shuttle docks with the space station, you can see one trailing behind the other. Both are incredibly bright! Neighbours must think I am wierd standing on my driveway staring up at the sky 2 or 3 times a week.

Depending on the flight path you could have almost 2 full minutes of view horizon to horizon, and grab your binoculars you can sometimes make out the faint details of the space station if fully illuminated.

could also be something called an iridum flare (sun bouncing off iridium communications constellation satelite. They're low, so this happens somewhat often)
