Duration:10 seconds
bright light that appears to be aircraft planning to land but then suddenly changes course and flies in opposite direction like a bulle

I was driving home at approx. 23:00 hours and was stopped in the median before turning onto my street off of greenfield rd. in Brandon Ms. (where new texaco gas station is now located) and just happened to look up into the night sky which was a very clear and beautiful night, and noticed a white fireball. I watched it for about 5 seconds thinking it was an airplane getting ready to land at the nearby airport. It was moving from east to west at what I would consider normal aircraft speed, and then all of a sudden it snapped like it was connected to a large rubberband and flew back toward the east. I was in the military for 10 years and law enforcement for 6 and I've never seen anything move that fast. It was gone and out of sight within less than a second. It was a real creepy experience.
