High Altitude Point Of Light

High Altitude Point Of Light

Date: February 15, 1967

Location: Andover, MA

I was walking back to my dorm at my prep school on a cold winter evening when I saw a point of light moving fairly rapidly directly from west to east across the clear sky on a track passing somewhat to the north of me. I had long enough to say to myself that it seemed to be faster than a satelite, but much slower than a meteor.

When it got directly north of me it made an instantaneous 90 turn to the north without changing velocity. Then it accelerated over the horizon, New Hampshire, in what seemed like an instant.

I was dumbfounded that an object could seem to make a 90 turn in the air, or space, which seemed to defy the physics I was learning in school.
