Shape: Light | Duration: 1 minute
Source:

high speed light over central valleyI walked out to my patio looked up to the north west to see a light moving at a very high rate of speed (faster than a normal air craft) to the east. I watched it for 30 seconds then went to get my iPhone hoping could record it. about 15 seconds to get it. Too dark for camera. I continued to watch it for another 20 seconds before it was out of site in the north east sky. I have seen the space shuttle on approach to Florida from California in the sky and it was moving faster than it. but the object may have been at a lower altitude than the shuttle giving that appearance. but to cover the view i have from my patio of the sky in just over a minute is fast. the object speed against the stars was less 4 seconds from one to the next. using the stars to base the rate of speed it was traveling.
