I was outside at 9pm because i wanted to see if a white star-like object, which has recently come over my yard from the south about the same time and direction every day, would come by again.I was trying to see if that object was a satellite (though it was much too bright, a steady light, and curved from se to n). by 9:30 pm i still had not seen the object for which i was waiting. i was standing against the building when from behind me (west) a white star-like object (#1)flew over my head and about 20° further east over my yard. it soon disappeared into a cloud. i am normally not doing astronomy and observing on cloudy nights, but as explained above, i was on this night. at 10:58 pm i was facing east, naked-eye observing of the spring constellations, when out of the corner of my eye in the ne/overhead a white star (#2) suddenly got very bright (+3 mag to +1 mag). it moved about 40° across the sky, from nearly overhead, up and over toward the se. (see photo). it dimmed to +2, and came to stop about 10° above and to the south of jupiter. i stayed out to finish my cigar, and it remained in the spot as i went into the house about 20 minutes later. i checked satellite software and there were no satellites directly overhead. there were only two satellites over michigan, and neither are on the list of the 200 brightest (average magnitude +5), and i saw no flaring type light. (these objects are the 251st and 252nd similar objects i have seen since october 2015.) the photo was taken with nikon dslr 50mm, f5, auto-iso, about 20 sec exposure. it has been enlarged. the object #2 moves from left to right across the photo.
