|quiet, close, super-sonic, white, round white light
I was up late trading foreign currency on my computer, when i saw a light moving very fast across the western sky. It was moving south at an incredible speed...much faster and quieter (complety quiet actually) than than the L-39 and F-16 jets i have encountered during my life. I am a licenced skydiver and canopy pilot with 603 jumps and have "logged" over a year of residental (night and day) time at airports. I have been witness to close encounters with all sorts of conventional aircraft, and this event does not fit the bill...AT ALL!
I also love to (try so far) photograph shooting stars, and have witnessed many. Some during the day, but most at night. They always have some sort of trail of either smoke or still burning fragments.
Also, when they are traveling in the lower atmosphere, they actually burn a more red color instead of the white plasma seen in the high atmosphere stage. This I can say for sure...It had no tail, it was close (maybe 650 feet away at 60 degree angle to horizon), it was completly quiet. it was traveling pefectly straight/level/south, the light looked the same coming and going, it was round, and the light (which was all I saw) had a very strange quality to it. It was very clean or pure looking, and didn't blink at all. Like a giant l.e.d light, that had a sligly stronger output of blue spectrum.
I swear on all that is good in this world, that this is not a hoax, and that I have truthfully relayed all facts in this matter in the way that I understand them to have occured.
