It's cool your website I come from time to see a bit what is going
ona round us.
Good I did not see a UFO at least I dont think I have.
That was this morning when it was still night it was between 5 and 5:30
a.m. I dont now exactly. And I looked at shooting stars because I must
have conted at least 12 after then I looked at stars. And then suddenly I
took a flash which came from all above in the stars and thus I really wonder
what that could be. That lasted just a second. And that was as if I a tracd
a fine line of 5cm approximately compared to the distance it was that
appeard very very high.
That was like a flash of a strong white light then which after you
would have said glass then that was so strong that in the second which
follows I had the impression to still see theshadow. (a little when
one looks at a light in a room then someones turns of the light you
still sees it's shade) Well I dont now how to explain that.
And thus I seek what this could be but I do not find. I think that
maybe that was an Iridium flash? But it does not show a photograph
to see what that really resembles.
But is that visible to the eye naked?
Then with a telescope I wonder whether you can see the satellite?
For the moment I have found no French website for I could have
these infos but I continue to look fotr it on the internet.
