Date of Sighting: March 23, 2008
Time of Sighting: 6:57 PM to 7:11 PM
Date Sighting Reported: March 23, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 14 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Big Bear City, California (S California About 60 MI ENE of LA)
Latitude: 34.26 Degrees North
Longitude: 116.82 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds Were From the ENE at 5 MPH.

Description: The object was seen in the evening sky to the south. The object moved due south. It remained in the sky for 9 to 11 minutes moving very slowly. I took several pictures of object throught a 10 inch dobsonian telescope and 40mm eyepiece.

Comments: The International Space Station (ISS) and STS 123 (Space Shuttle) were still docked on March 23 and would have passed over the sighting area between 6:10 PM and 6:12 PM on March 23. This is before the time that the witness took the photos. The witness has verified that the times of the photos above are correct. A check of known satellite orbits on the heavens-above web site (http://www.heavens-above.com) showed no visible satellites in the area at the time of photos. Some satellite orbits may not be tracked by the heavens-above site. Given this possibility the photos could be of one of these "untracked" satellites.
