Waskatenau, Alberta Bright Moving Object

Date: September 7, 2005
Time: Approx: 4:00 a.m.

Wednesday morning about 4:00 o'clock (only a guess) I was looking at a faint star cluster high in the south. From behind it a bright object moved on in a southerly direction. No flashing lights, about the same as a large bright star though not as bright as Mercury. It seemed way to high and fast for a plane.

I've been told that satellites only move from east to west. Is this correct? It was very clear and still, the best look for a long time at the stars.

I'm glad I found your site, for I would like to know how to identify satellites as would one of my grandsons. I'll look forward to your reply.

Additional Information:

Thanks for the quick response. I live in Waskatenau, hemmed in by trees & houses so my view is limited. Could I have been looking at the Andromeda Galaxy?

No, there were no planes about nor any other moving things. I had been scanning the sky for about 5 minutes. I've gone over it in my mind and it was just a slight movement in the cluster that drew my attention to keep looking there. I hadn't noticed anything in the area before that.

Thanks for the excellent web sites, I've passed them on to a couple of grandsons as well. I used to live in the country and knew the sky much better then.

Thank you to the person for sharing their report.
