  • Next UFO sighting?

    Hello,

    I saw some unidentified flying object in the sky at 03:45 UTC on 08.Oct.2018 passing over Kassel, Germany, in the direction west-west-north. It appeared to go as fast as most passenger jets appear to go in the sky, perhaps a Little bit faster. It was very bright in the night sky, brighter like other stars and diffuse. I couldnot identify it properly. I noticed at flightradar24 some airliner which was heading in almost the same direction just a half Minute later. It was the only airliner in this Region close to that object: KLM810, Registration PH-BQK. It must have seen This object. The visibility was very good. I ve got photos but the object is only a small white patch. I ask myself if pilots of one of this airliner could see something. The ISS was at this Moment somewhere over Pacific Ocean.
    Thanks for help.

    Could it have been the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California with SAOCOM 1A, a radar observation satellite for Argentina ??? Its been on TV news today.

    Liftoff was 08/10/2018 @ 13:22 so maybe investigate the time difference and if the planned trajectory was over Germany.

      There are many satellites out there, not just the ISS. Some of them show up as a very bright irridium flare - i.e. a very bright light in the sky that does not fade as it moves away from you until at some point in the sky it vanishes into earth's shadow
