|bright object very high speed came to complete stop moved off in another directions very high rate of speed no sound
A friend an me were walking across a field heading to the on base movie theater. It was a clear night. As we were walking a bright round object heading towards our direction. Without looking at a map I cannot give a course heading. Anybody familer with the base, we were coming from the enlisted housing development on the hill next to the golf couse and the object was coming towards us. The mountains being to the left and airfield on the right . The object was probably at an altitude of 1000 to 2000 ft and moving at a rate of speed that i have never seen before. I been around military air bases my whole life (I currently work at Airforce base on the flight line and see our fighters jets all the time)The object came to a complete stop and then headed in a nintey degree angle to the left and headed out over the mountains slightly climbing and moving at an incredible rate of speed and out of site. As soon as it was out of site I started to to eliminate any possibilities like a search light, signal flare, military aircraft, shooting star etc etc.. Also there was no sound at all. My friend and i looked at each other and said what in the hell was that? We both ran all the way to the post theater. Even to this day I cannot give you an explination as to what the two of us saw that night. All i know is that this object moved at a speed that i have only seen in the movies and that it came to a complete stop and moved in another direction and disappeard in a blink of an eye.
