Duration:less than 1 minute
We saw a craft that flew way too fast for any jet that current technology can produce.

We saw a craft about the height that planes fly (30,000 ft?). It was white or silver and kinda shaped like a hamburger. It was just cruising along, then it kinda hovered (when we saw it and started pointing at it saying "what is that?"). It made kind of a looping u-turn, then it made a big left hand turn, and started accelerating. Then it accelerated so fast it disapeared from sight in about 3-5 seconds. It was unbeleivable! It was like Star Trek or something the way it disapeared. There was no sound or anything. At first we thought it might be a satelite until it turned.
