I live in NW Missouri and yesterday morning, Apr.12th. about 0530,<br />I was on my deck looking up at the Big Dipper. A bright light appeared in the middle of the 'dipper' part and appeaered to be moving. It was only visible for about 3 to 4 seconds. It was about as bright as Venus, very visible. Was this possibly some type of sattelite or space station? It never left the inside of the dipper part.
