Shape: Light
Duration:10 Seconds
June 17 2004, Bavaro, Dominican Republic. Bright light in sky which stops and changes direction.

We looked up into the overcast sky to see what appeared to be a bright star in the sky. However, the star was moving at a quick speed (about 5 to 6 times quicker than a jumbo jet plane) and we noticed that it was only one light, no little flashing lights next to it like a normal plane. After about 5 seconds the light stopped dead in the sky for about two seconds before shooting off at a ninety-degree angle and travelled for about further three seconds before it shot up through the clouds.
