I saw a super bright fast moving dot fade in then suddenly wink out like flicking a light switch

Recommended Posts

it was outside at night i was looking up at the sky naked eye. and saw a bright dot fade in quickly. then it nearly seemed to blink out of of existence. it disappeared almost in an instant. there was no trail or anything though.

Ive also seen a good couple of bright meteors too. but they didnt look quite the same.

No it was not in minecraft??

Most likely a communications satellite. There are so many up there now that it's hard not to see one when looking up.

Some (especially the older Iridium models) cause a 'flare' as they reflect the sunlight back to earth from their solar panels. There's a short video of an Iridium flare on the Wikipedia page here:
