Shape: Light | Duration: ~ 2 minutes

second time in one month a light makes a 90 degree turn overheadThis is a coincidence. Just yesterday, I filed a report about light that made a 90 degree left turn and was being chased by a military jet a month ago. Last night, I was outside with my telescope, and saw something similar.My wife and I were seeing how many galaxies we could spot through the eyepiece of my little 6-inch telescope in the Virgo Galaxy Cluster. We were also chatting about what we did during the day. I relayed to her how I had filed a report for a UFO chase I witnessed last month (which I had told her of the night it happened), and how picky you guys were about spell-checking the report before filing it. She was telling me about a friend who had just died from cancer. In other words, just the usual talk.Here is what we saw. At 10:12 pm, PDT on May 14th, 2009, we both saw a very bright single light moving eastward, just north of the star Spica. It was as bright as any satellite we have ever seen, like an “Iridium Flare”. I would say it was as bright as Venus ever gets. I said to her, “Do you see that bright satellite?” while pointing to it. She said she did. We watched it moving for a few seconds, at the typical speed a satellite moves. It then dimmed to the brightness of a faint star. We know satellites fade as they enter the Earth’s shadow, so it was expected. What was NOT expected was that the “satellite” made an instantaneous left turn and headed north-east, passing next to the bright star Arcturas on its way. I watched it fade in brightness until it was no longer visible, in northern part of the constellation Bootes. I said to my wife, “Satellites never change direction like that.” She agreed, as she has seen at least a hundred of satellites as well, and is familiar with the way they move across the sky.When we first noticed it, it was in the general area that commercial aircraft take, but it had no blinking lights. Commercial aircraft don’t make tight turns like that. And it made no sound whatsoever. Commercial aircraft are very audible, both as they approach my area, and as they depart the area. There were no other aircraft visible, or audible, at this time.So there we have it, a second mysterious light over my area making 90 degree turns, silently, in a single month. But this time, I have a witness.
