Shape: Light
Duration:15 seconds
glowing round object approaches at a distance ,turns away suddenly and disappears.

at approximately 6 am i was waiting for my partner to wake up for bow hunting event. as i watched the night sky i could see billions of stars. no moon. no light. i saw a bright light approaching at rapid speed directly towards me. at first i thought it was a shhoting star as i had seen many of such. however, this object had no tail. it got larger and larger as i assumed it was getting nearer to me. i then thought it must be an airplane as my lease is about 30 miles from dyess airforce base. however, i had not seen aircraft with lights at that altitude, and i saw no beams nor heard nay noise which i should have based on past experience seeing aircraft in the vicinity. the object then seemed to stop, turn suddenly and move in the opposite direction. the light got smaller and smaller very quickly as ti seemed to be gaining altitude. i then lost sight of it. i do not believe this was a satelite as we had seen one the night before and this had no similar appearance. i have hunted for 35 years, seen many things in the night sky including planes, comets, shooting stars etc, and have never seen anything like this.surley the airforce base had to have had radar contact with this object because the event lasted at least 15-20 seconds.
