September 24th 2008 : Near Lake Lanier, North Georgia
Near Lake Lanier, North Georgia Low Flying Bright Light
Date: September 24, 2008
Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.
I came across your website and blog article today while searching Google for news reports about an object I observed in north Georgia last night around 10pm (not quite sure what time it was) eastern time.
I live near Lake Lanier in North, Georgia and have been frequently star gazing in the evening as the weather and the sky have been wonderful. Crystal clear skies and low 50 degree weather make it possible to sit for hours.
Last night around 10pm I decided to stand outside and take a look off my back porch which looks to the west. I saw the typical stars and planets, and of course aircraft, always with their tell tail strobe. I noticed a very large slow moving object that appeared to travel from the south heading north just above the tree-line in a very low orbit. It was at least 5x in diameter of the brightest star in the sky and easily 5x as bright. It was distinctly yellow in color, and took approximately 1 to 2 minutes to pass out of view. There was no trail, and no change in course.
You were the only person on this date to report anything similar.
I checked various Nasa and satellite websites, and entered in my long and lat, and have found nothing. Based on the speed at which this object moved I have a hard time thinking it was a meteor, but then again with no satellite data reporting a flyover in my area. I'm baffled.
I'll be out again tonight to look for a repeat show.
Figured I would let you know we may have seen similar or the same object, at roughly the same time (not sure what time zone you are in).
Anyway, if you find out anything, let me know. Thanks!
