First observed in the sw sky & very faint appearing to be at very high altitude. went directly overhead going nw presuming extremely fast since the entire sighting only lasted about 6 to 8 seconds from approx 15 dgrees sw to approx. 10-15 degrees nw. near the end of the sighting one appeared to abruptly change direction before goingf out of sight. on sept. 30th approx 10-12 years ago i was out camping with my wife when we both observed 3 objects in a v formation, again very high. i thought it a unique experience to observe 3 satellites so close together, and traveling in the same direction. suddenly one of them completely stopped. as i watched the other two a second one also stopped dead. i watched the one that was still moving, but when i looked back to try to keep track of the other two, the first one must have also stopped, as i saw no more movement over the next ten minutes or so. of couse, as soon as i saw the first one stop, i knew that they couldn't have been satellites after all.
