|My cousin and I saw a light that looked like a star that moved very fast accross the sky and then disappeared.
On June 11th at approximately 10:15PM, my cousin and I decided to go outside to smoke cigarettes. It was a calm night and the stars were clearly visible accross the night sky. Then we saw something. It appeared to look like a star. He asked me if it was an airplane and I told him that it was. But it started to move really fast. It looked like a star that was moving. It zig-zagged a little bit and then it turned orange and disappeared right before our very eyes. We were freaked out with what we just saw because we never saw anything like that before. 2 minutes later, we saw a real airplane. The lights were blinking and it was moving, but it was moving very slow. That was the normal speed of any airplane. What we saw moved 3 times faster than that.
