Fast moving light in N.W. Phoenix.

At about 6:20 am MST on Sunday, November 12th, I was going outside to Get my paper, when and saw it wasn't there yet so I turned to go back inside and saw a light about the size of a big star moving towards me from the South West. The first thing I noticed was that it was moving fast and smoothly. I thought UFO? Then I thought no, Airforce jet. Then I realized it was moving too fast, and had an odd floating sense about it. I continued to watch and it wavered a litle twice which tipped me off that wasn't a conventional craft. It started at about twenty degrees off the horizon and kept coming towards me and slightly curving. It started out about the size of a big star and was the size of high altitude aircraft light. It was either very high and moving VERY fast, or very low and EXTREMELY small. There was absolutely no noise, It was just after dawn and the full moon was low to the W. Northwest so there was plenty of light to see if there any conventional stucture. There was none. The light was white and there were no other colored lights to indicate any kind of coventional craft. It continued to move overhead and to the Northeast until it was out of site. The whole thing too k 3-4 minutes and it moved faster than any plane at a high altitude, even the airforce jets of which I am familiar with. I have spent most of my 37 years in phoenix and have been watching the Phoenix skies since I was a kid, but very consistantly for the past 16 years. I spent I am very familiar with the air traffic in the area. I spent ten of those years outside at night almost every night for 5-8 hours because of insomnia, and because as an actor and artist I have a very hard time winding down after work. For the past 2 years I have been riding my bike at night for 1-4 hours. I have seen many UFO's in the past four years in the valley. It has become almost common place. I tried to report one to you several years ago but was followed by what I realized was a man in black, and had someone come into my back yard one night! and was just a couple of feet from my open screened window. I thought I woud try the website this time. I have better than 20-20 vision, and excellent night vision which I didn't need this time because there was plenty of light. I had the odd sensation that "it"or "they" knew I was watching it.
