Duration:10 sec.
I was talking to my friend (we were camping outside) and it was a clear night. A light appeared out of nowhere among the stars, and began to move unlike any aircraft that I've heard of, before retreating at extremely high speed and vanishing with a flash.

The sighting occurred during the middle of summer, and I was talking to my friend outside underneath a clear sky. I believe that it was the 15 of July, a day before my friend's birthday, although I'm not completely sure. My friend was talking to me on her stomach, so she didn't see anything, but I was on my back looking at the stars. I was randomly looking around, when all of sudden this fiercly bright light appeared at a high altitude (I assume), and it sat still for a second. Then, it began to move in a tight zig-zaggish pattern, with extremely straight lines, at about the speed that you see a plane going at, or a sattelite. It paused for a bit after each movement, and then it changed direction. I then noticed that it stopped and began to grow insanely bright. Not bigger, but just brighter. Then, it sped off extremely quickly... it was like a blur of light, and left with a flash, disappearing from sight at one point in the sky. It's movements, I noticed, were extremely clean, like a hovercraft does on water, except in very clean, straight lines. This all took place within my approximation of about ten seconds.
