Shape: Light
Duration:30secs
About 9.30pm I was walking my dog when I heard a military jet aproaching from the southeast, I saw a light which apeared to be a jet being followed by another fighter jet, then all of a sudden the second fighter hit the after burner, it apeared to be trying to catch the first object. When it finally got close enought the first object, it made a 90 degree turn, and just took off to the south and was gone in a blink of a eye. Then the second fighter turned a round and headed back towards Mirimar Base. I have never seen an object change direction and have a speed well over any thing we have, I would guess it would have gone at a speed of 5000 miles an hour, it was gone out of sight in a less than a tenth of a second, I just got a glimpse it's speed out of the corner of my eye. The strange thing we rarely ever have any military fighers fly over, and not at low altitude probably under 20,000 feet and none have ever kicked in their after burners.
