Location: Arden, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:45 seconds
Bright light, moving faster than the planes close by!!!

I first saw two airplanes, one to the north traveling to the west, prop engine noise was why I looked up, the other was a jet, also noise, traveling from the north to the south, while I was looking up, I observed a bright,white, light, just appear overhead, no details, just bright. It was traveling faster than either of the planes from east to west, it disappeared as fast as it had appeared. While looking up, trying to determine if this was another plane, it reappeared sightly to the north of the last location I had seen it in and was now traveling south to north, again, it was only visible for about 10 seconds. While looking, I observed several high attitude jets (vapor trails), with the sun shining on them, but they were not as bright as this light. And none were in the area I had observed the light.

I am a retired Police Detective and now a Director of Training. Would really love to know what that was?
