I pointed out a Satellite, it signaled back!

I was camping a couple weeks ago, way out 20 miles from any town, 5000ft up near Cherry Lake, Ca.
Our friends had already went to bed, so my Wife and I layed back and watched for shooting stars and satellite's.
We had seen a couple of each and then I spotted a satellite moving right above us. I pointed it out to my Wife, but she couldn't spot it. So I took out a small laser pointer, but it was useless. Then I pulled out my Cree LED flashlight with a T6, and the beam helped her spot the satellite.

After a few moments, the satellite seemed like it stopped and was coming stright down at us, with a light like the landing light on a plane!!
It scared the heck out of my Wife and I started getting nervious, like where's the Glock.
It seemed like it came directly at us for 8-10 seconds with a light that was many times brighter than any star or planet in the sky, then suddenly the light shut off and it resumed its course!
We looked at each other and said "What the Heck??"

Any one ever see anything like that? Butch

Ive seen wierd shit lately too. Just the other night I noticed a light that was moving, solid light though...not blinking... I assumed it to be an air plane. It flew on a linear trajectory behind a small cloud. Nothing ever emerged on that trajectory...or any other ....and when the cloud had moved by nothing was visible at all. Just dissapeared behind the cloud ..i waited quite a long while..scanning the area.

Air craft dont surprise me because the c130's or w/e they call them now like to fly over my house at 1,000 feet . But that was odd.

What you saw was an "Iridium Flare". (Or similar reflection from a different satellite) The human brain is a "connection engine" always looking for cause/effect and patterns in whatever it is we see or do. (even when there is none) So if you lased and shined a flashlight at the satellite, then it just happened to flare, your brain's cause/effect circuits are going to go into overdrive. (the primal feeling of being outdoors at night makes this all very elevated too..) And the brighter light probably overrode your ability to follow it's progress across the sky, and your now heebie-jeeby jazzed up brain interpreted the brightness as it coming closer.

Satellite flares are when solar panels, or certain flat spots on the satellite's body will reflect the sun, and because they need to maintain their orientation to keep certain antennas pointed at Earth etc. or the solar panels aimed at the sun, the geometry of all this is known. The times these reflected sunbeams will sweep the Earth are predictable.

So if you know the Latitude and Longitude of where you were, and a good guess of the time of night, you can plug it into one of many websites online and have an exact identification of which satellite it was.

TR-3B:

TRIANGLE UFO Paris France Possible TR 3B Project Francais July 23, 2008 - YouTube

Brought to you by the same people that brought us the f117, b2, lasers, fiber optics, nano circuts, pulse engines, magnetic field disrupters and most likely clean fusion energy. CIA, Military and NIS. They won't share yet though.

You'll never guess where they got this technology from though:

USAF Top Secret TR-3B Aurora Project - YouTube

If you guys out west stop and look at the sky once in a while i'll bet you can see some interesting stuff. Funny, local news caught one on tape by me this year. Read the comments under this video and see what the mp says...almost same account given by a dying soldier to my doctor when he worked at the v.a. Hospitol here in town:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWbCHMc9vUQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player

I asked...he had no prior psych record...and my doctor was freaked by it. So am I.

If you search around for tr3b sightings, there are too many similarities for this to be coincidence...and once you understand what it is it will blow your mind. And, you'll know why we have discontinued most space programs.

It's probably a good thing we don't know and are giving explinations like the one above me.

Not saying this is what you saw, just trying to give you an idea of what kind of things are out there because there are objects that don't have to follow the basics laws of inertia anymore like 50's era satillites.

Ha!

Well remember that satellites can fade quite fast... as in like a few seconds... if they have large reflective surfaces and are rotating quickly; or as they pass into the earth's shadow.

On a related note, the other night I was out jogging and I stopped for a minute and saw something strange. It was a bright-ish dot moving across the like a meteor. About the same speed, if not a bit slower than, and in a straight trajectory. However, it had no tail. It was just a spot. The freaky part came when over the course of about 1/2 of a second it appeared to slow, stop, and accelerate back to its previous speed but at a slightly different angle. I instantly got goosebumps, and no longer wanted to be jogging out in the dark, haha. The stopping and starting was most likely all in my head or eyes, but the fact that it lacked a tail or streak was definitely real.

Uhhhh...i am not a conspirecy theory nut...read my post...do a little searching and realize that we did not stop making cool stuff after the declassified b2 bomber in the 90's...and they were working on that from the late 60's and 70's. The stealth planes positively charge the front of the wings and negatively charge the wash off of these planes to make the heat signature dissapear, among other things. There are more things you don't know about "old things."

Your brain will pop if you could see what is capable now. Not just flying stuff either. Sub-atomic computing and processors that have switches aligned in 3 dimensions that can handle trillions the tasks that a single surface chip can do...with no buses.

It is also possible to deconstruct photons and reassemble the same photon/s in a different location instantaniously...that's simple time travel if you didn't know. And that was done 10 plus years ago by a public research facility in california... Imagine what the military has!

"Be careful where you point your lasers" takes on a whole new meaning if you care to concider that commercial/civilian planes might not be the only things sharing airspace...and the FAA and FDA won't be the ones behind the free anal probe if you point that laser at the wrong object!

Ha! Kidding of course.

Hope I helped stimulate thought and provided at least some entertainment.

Later,
Patrick

^^ This is probably the most likely cause, or possibly the ISS. As AJ said you can google satellite tracking to find out. Now if said object suddenly and rapidly made a zig zag, or right or left angle turn, then it was something else! :can:

Stopping it's course, decending on y axis, then continuing on is a zig zag... You did not read what butch777 typed.

He did not freak out because lights glinted off it... It stopped decended...flashed lights... Then continued on.... He is obviously shaken.

The jet engines on airplanes get very bright when they fire. They stay on for a while and then will slowly go dim until you see nothing at all anymore. Perhaps this is what you saw?

I wish I knew more about the specifics, but I do know that there are several whitnesses that say that the orb (that looks like it is adjusting it's gain and size) that eminates from the magnetic field disrupter looks completely 2 dimensinal with no spherical qualities and has an absolute, difinitive edge (no diffused light). In other words, almost a void of space. This is what that IR video from paris seems to have picked up.

I don't know what to make of this as it is a scary concept... and if it exists, it means we probably have visited further reaches of our solar system and you don't know about it yet.

There are other videos of these things disrupting missiles and even flying next to and tracking them. In a war games missile test video in iran you can see the clouds, in the day time, out in front of the missile being disturbed by something moving at a faster rate of speed that is cloaked.

There are videos of this happening of the coast of california picked up by the news and denied by the gov... over russia... and many accounts of these vehicles seen in war theaters.

Some are large enough to carry divisions of troops.

What has been declassified from decades ago is scary enough...what they are playing with now is mind boggling.

I wounder if anyone else on this forum has heard of this?

Back to original post - there is a guy in washington state I beleive posting videos on youtube of objects moving around in the sky, on daily occurances, that are similar to what butch777 describes. He has pieced together methods for filming these objects, in daylight as well as night, from store bought optics.

It's all crazy I know...but I can dig them up if interested.
