Location: Hoover, AL
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
A point of light starting moving very fast then vanished. I saw the same thing a few minutes later.

I was out with the dog looking at the stars when I noticed a point of light looking just like a star moving very fast almost directly above. No trail, sound, blinking lights, just a point of light. I thought it was a satellite or the space station and went inside to tell the wife to hurry outside. I then went back outside looking for it but did not see anything. I knew it was moving so fast it would already be past the trees. Then from the same point in the sky I saw a point of light take off in the same direction. This time I watched it till is vanished overhead. It got very dim and disappeared. From my experience it was nothing like a meteor. I did not think it was strange at the first time, but when I went back outside and saw the same thing again that was weird. I just wished I had watched it the first time to see if it slowly disappeared.
