Duration:10 seconds
Saw an unidentified craft with outstanding maneuverablility and silent operation on the coast of Cancun, Mexico.

I was vacationing in Cancun with my family. My daughters and I were at the pool at night. They were swimming, I was standing at the edge of the pool. It was a mostly clear night with some light scattered clouds. I heard the noise of a small plane. I looked up and could see the plane by its lights and some reflection of the resort lights as it headed off in a ESE direction out over the ocean. It was flying at about cloud level. It was not traveling at a great rate of speed.

Something caught my eye that at first I thought was a meteorite. It came from over my head/shoulder traveling in a northern direction (along the coast). It made no sound. It moved at a very fast speed, then slowed down almost instantly. It made a sharp move in about a 45 degree angle toward the NW then made a circular move behind one of the clouds and ended up coming almost directly back at me. It had a single, white light in front. The whole thing was sort of manta ray shaped and had a silvery white glow (very subtle- which was just a bit more than what would have reflected up from the resort). It came a short distance toward me then very quickly turned completely around (a 180 degree turn in almost no turning radius) and sped away through the cloud again. It moved very differently than anything I've ever seen. It was smallish, like the size of the single engine plane. It was very organically shaped, smooth.
