|A bright white light moving at supersonic speed in northern sky of southeastern U.S.
I left my brothers residence shortly before 2200 hours. As I was walking to door he stated he had to go outside to turn off sprinkler. I then departed to return home as I drove into my yard I observed unknown in northern sky and appeared to be app. 5 miles away at app. 5000 ft. altitude moving at supersonic speed (700/1000 mph) with no noise of any kind, it very rapidly was obscured by tree line on my property. My brother also lives on this same mutual farm property and we are seperated by this same tree line and about 300 meters distant. I knew my brother had just went outside to turn off irrigation I immediatly called him to see if he had also observed. My brother had also observed and reported that craft had also disappeared beyond tree line. I have a background in sport aviation and I consider myself to be knowledgeable of aircraft types and am not fooled by things such as landing lights or military aircraft and I have observed many meteors and manmade debris entering atmosphere and this had a markedly different appearance in the very few seconds I observed. The object was bright white illumination(not burning) w/flat trajectory and no debris was falling off as in space junk I have previously seen(if norad releases any statement on this please contact me with info)
