object sits stationary for 5 minutes and then accelerates out of sight in 5 seconds.

I was 13 at the time. My sister and I were looking out the 2nd story window and saw an orange ball about half the size of a full moon. It was sitting still. We watched it for approx. 5 minutes when all of a sudden it accelerated at a high rate of speed and was out of sight in about 5 seconds. The next day the front page of the now defunct Detroit Times newspaper had reports on the front page of sightings in Detroit as well as over the Capitol in Washing D.C.
