It travelled too fast to be man made.

I have kept this incident to myself since the age of 12, but remember it like it was yesterday.

At the time I lived in the country on a rural road. I was standing in my front yard facing South.

At first I thought it was a star. The object came out of the East at what looked like about 3 miles up, and about a mile away. It covered in about 3-4 seconds, what I knew at the time to be at least 8 miles, and stopped directly over a wooded/farming area between my house and the next town South called Doylestown about 2 miles away.

The "star" remained stationary for about 5 seconds, then shot straight up covering a distance of about 2-3 miles in about 3 seconds, then stopped and remained stationary for about 5-7 seconds.

It then shot straight down past its original position, covering a distance of about 3-5 miles in about 2-3 seconds, stopped and remained stationary again for about 5-7 seconds.

It then shot up to its original position in about 1-2 seconds, stopped, and remained stationary again for approximately 10-12 seconds.

Then in a straight horizontal line, it shot westward, and traveled out of sight in about 2-3 seconds.

I know it was not an airplane or helicopter, because I now know that nothing the military had, could travel that fast, that far, in that kind of maneuver,and stop that fast. Iy had no colored lights, and made no sound.

Correction on duration of time, 20-25 seconds.
