Sighting Details

Was taking a few nightsky shots with 35mm lens looking to capture stars,satellites, planes whatever. Walked over to the wife talking a minute when I noticed a brighter than usual light moving to the ENE from the W. This would put this object crossing the beach just south of Masonboro Inlet. The object was brighter than anything in the sky,silent,and stayed lit(not strobing). Only thing that flys this path is the SABLE chopper, and you can surely tell when he is flying by sound alone. The 1st photo had to move the camera to position and was shaky. In the 2nd photo(moved camera again to locate) the object was going behind the tree and in pic #3(had to move camera again) it is not shaky and shows the wobbly path and inconsistent yellow /orange glare. I wished I had not been set for 8 sec exposures as it appears to just be a trail of light. It is plain to see it is not a chopper or plane due to their lights are more consistent as evident in photo #3 of a planes lights. It did not appear to be moving extremely fast,but steady for sure. In pic #3 I am not sure how to analyze the length of line the plane made in 6 secs at a further distance / as the object made at what appeared to me to be a closer distance. The objects line seems to be 1.5 as fast as the plane. Silently is what gets me : ) Nikon D5200 35mm lens f/1.8 ISO-1600 8 sec
