last night around 11:30 pm (6-25-12)…in Bellevue, NE. roughly 2 miles from Offutt Air Force Base.
i went outside and was sitting on the balcony chatting with my roomie. looking at the stars and the night sky like i always do. in the southwest i noticed a light that was about as bright as a planet but i noticed the light was flashing and barely moving. flashing different than a plane..it couldn’t be a planet because it was on the move, then it vanished.
2 minutes later while i was talking i noticed a more bright constant white light appear more west that was closer in the corner of my eye . it moved across the sky for about 2 seconds then disappeared. i thought it might be a satellite at first, but they’re not so close and usually travel across the sky longer and slowly fade out, but this didn’t do that.
about a minute later a really bright flash caught the corner of my eye again but when i looked it was gone. even though i couldn’t see anything i grabbed my iphone and took a picture as quick as i could. i didn’t expect i’d find this in the photo!
