Object Flight Path
I was watching Lyrids meteor shower on NASA channel. Not much action then at 9:57 pm an object appeared descending from top to bottom of screen in a straight line. Moving to slow to be a meteor, took 5 or 6 seconds to move across the screen. Could have been a satellite but I have seen them moving across the sky west to east or south to north not descending straight down. Just saw another at 10:19 while typing this almost exact same trajectory and speed. Marshall Space Flight Center Sky camera, WBCC Cocoa,FL NASA
