Sighting Details

I confer with a report from someone in Cheshire Oregon. On the 7th of July my wife and I observed a light similar to the ISS traveling from the SW to the NE I am a long time sky watcher with a 10" dob and I've never seen anything like this. This was going at least 4x as fast as any satellite but it didn't appear to be as high as a normal satellite. I am 99% certain it was not an airplane because this looked to be reflective light. Last night at approximately the same time 9:45 I saw it again. This time it was headed straight from the south and curved toward the northwest. I have witnessed ISS many times and as the person in Cheshire stated there were no ISS passes scheduled for our area for days. I have had my eye to the sky for many many years and this is the first time I can honestly say I've seen something that can not be identified. The speed at which this object was traveling shook me, it had to be doing 40,000-50,000 miles per hour! If we have satellites that can travel that speed I would really like to know more! I would also like to compare notes with the person in Cheshire, were only a few miles apart...I live in Eugene.
