The Sighting (IFO): 

A homemaker (58) reported seeing a fast moving, flickering light that changed speed at 11:07 PM in a clear sky. Duration of the event was estimated to be an hour.

 

Investigators joined the witness to watch the night sky. The witness was found to have glaucoma and to have severe vision problems. She reacted very strongly to an Iridium flare and also to satellites and other mundane distant lights.

 

The sighting was deemed a “borderline” IFO by the investigator.

 

No sound was reported.  Physiological effects of stiffness and effects on eyesight were reported.   An EM effect of static on a cell phone was reported.
