Full Description of event/sighting: Hi, My girlfriend and I were in our homes backyard last Friday. I was out since 20h30 stargazing with my telescope as I do for 20 years each time I got time. My girlfriend was coming out of the pool and just sat on the deck looking at the sky. She told me to look at a satellite that she has just spotted coming from the North-West 'cause it looked weird. It took me a couple of seconds to spot it, because it was a little dim, nothing abnormal to me. I told her that it's just a normal satellite as the other couple of hundreds (even thousands) I've seen in my "career" of amateur astronomer. But as I say that, the light turned at an angle of approximately 45 degrees, started going South-West and picked up speed while turning kind of bluish. It disappeared so fast that I can't even think it was coming from earth, never seen anything like it in my hole life !

Since that time, we've talked about our sighting every single day...never a satellite can change it's path like that.

Additional information.

Q. - Anyway, were you able to see a trail or tail following behind the object that you and your girlfriend witnessed ?

A. - Response: Not at all...

Q. - Was the object you both saw, was it at a high altitude ? (I am guessing it was)

A. - Response: About satellite high I think, surely in atmosphere...

Q. - How long were you both able to watch the object for ?

A. - Response: About 1 to 2 minutes until it sped away...

Q. - Was there any kind of flashing or blinking coming from it, maybe lights of some kind or the reflection of the sun if at a high altitude ?

A. - Response: Not flashing at all, maybe a solar reflection...

Q. - I almost forgot, was the light white before changing color to a blue ?

A. - Response: Yes, the object seemed white at first, but picked up speed and turned bluish.

P.S. Here's a sketch I've made from what we saw.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
