During my son-in-laws birthday gathering, we were rattled to hear a jet fighter flying low over our house off of Woodmen Rd. My youngest son, myself, and my eldest son ran outside to see the flame of the jets afterburner flying towards a bright light off to the East. This light resembled the light of an arc welder slowly moving to the North about at an altitude abput three fingers held out at arms length above the horizon. As the jet approached, the light sped off to the North at an extremely high velocity with the jet in hot pursuit. I have NEVER seen an object accelerate that fast before. it easily out-accelerated the jet.
