There was an extremely bright glow at the zenith I noticed about 6:30pm MST.  It had a S pattern and was moving across the sky at a slow speed.  It was amazing!

I saw this tonight as well! In western Colorado,  no idea what this was. Looked with my binoculars and could tell it had a star near the center.  I saw it at about 645 MST. I hope someone can shed some light on this!

Yep, I would say that's what it was.  Had very disctinctive S Shape and was amazing.  The two most amazing astronomical events I have seen have both been man-made.  The last one was the debris in July of 2016.
