Bright, yellow light traveling next to a jet over ArkansasMy nephew and I were sitting out on the deck, enjoying the stars. Every once in a while, some clouds would roll in, but at the time of the sighting, the sky was clear. We were facing the West and off to the SW I noticed an aircraft traveling West to East. I pointed it out to my nephew. From the lights and sound, I could easily tell it was a jet. A few seconds later, right overhead (North of the jet), we see this bright, yellow light moving about the same speed as the jet, moving along with it, West to East, about the same speed as the jet. It seemed like it might have had two very faint red lights on the rear, but no lights on any wings. You could barely make out red lights because the yellow light was so bright. We heard the jet briefly, but didn't notice any sound from the yellow light object. Maybe it got drowned out from the jet noise. I've sat out on my deck lots of nights and see lots of aircraft flying overhead and am used to the light configurations on them, but I haven't seen anything really like this before. I don't believe it was a meteor, or any kind of space debris, or satellite because it was moving too slow and didn't seem to "burn up". It was too bright to be a satellite. The yellow light was a lot brighter than I'm used to and no lights at all on the craft were flashing. They just stayed on and were consistent in color and brightness the entire time. Whatever it was I think it was flying around the same altitude as the jet, or maybe higher, because even though it was at night, I've seen low flying planes and helicopters at night and can usually make out their outline. I couldn't make out any outline on this. Even low flying planes with their landing lights don't seem as bright as this thing was. At first I thought it might be ISS, but I've seen it before and it seemed a bit too slow to be ISS, and brighter from what I remember, plus there were the two faint, red lights to the rear of it that didn't seem consistent with ISS. I thought maybe this might be! some ki nd of new aircraft I'm not used to seeing, maybe military since the jet was near. If anyone can solve this mystery, I'd greatly appreciate it.
