Brilliant Unexplained Object Soaring at Incredible Speeds and Angles over the South Georgia Skies

While driving down Hwy 82 in Tifton, my mother-in-law, son and I noticed a strange light in the sky, travelling at an odd angle and speed. First, we thought that it could possibly be the defunct spy satellite I read about in the news, and we dismissed it out of hand.

Then, we turned onto Hwy 319 to head towards Norman Park, where we live. Around Omega, we spotted the object again, and this time it was headed back in the exact same direction, at a much higher speed than previously.

As the road turned, we lost sight of the object again until roughly crossland, where we again spotted the object (cigar shaped and brilliant white at first, but as the sun set, it was glinting with shades of pink) travelling in a straight line parallel to the horizon.

We don't know what it was, but we know a lot of things it wasn't. Its the first unexplained object I've ever seen as an adult, and I wish we'd had our other cell phone with us so that we could have taken a picture of it.

It was rather creepy.
