Very bright light at a high rate of speed ... stopped for 5 seconds... shot off in a different direction....no sound...sceptical witnes

On this night, my husband ( a sceptic) and I were sitting on the back porch. We were listening to the Beach Boys concert at a nearby park and at least fifteen airplanes crossed the sky as usual with the normal sound of jets accompanying them. All of a sudden, a very bright light crossed the sky ten times the speed of any aircraft I have ever experienced, stopped in midair for five seconds, and shot off in a completely different direction. I sat speechless for a few seconds. My husband finally said, "Did you see that?" and I said, "I think we just saw a UFO." He has been talking about it ever since. I waited so long to post this in the hopes that someone else saw the same thing. Like it or not, there is a stigma attatched to this type of phenomenon. I have been interested in ariel phenomena for years, have been granted a scholarship for astronomy and have attended the NASA "space camp". I have always believed that there is more than meets the eye, but have never experienced it in recent years until now.
