Duration:4 minutes
Brightly glowing, Fast object rose veritcally then flattened out and flew past my house at speeds double anything i've seen.

My girlfriend and I were in my jacuzzi out back and I saw a light rise up from what looked to be the other side of town. About 10 15 min driving distance. It rose up from the ground straight up and while traveling upwards much like a rocket it level out once if got to what looked to the normal height of a small plane or helicopter But traveled at least twice as fast as both of these. On its way up it seemed to spiral and had a beam of light out in from of it. The UFO was bright gold, and had this gold aura all around it. It may sound strange but it seemed to have a similar shape to a plane, it had a pointed tip and two wings but the wings were pointed as well it almost looked like a star, I couldn't see the shape of the tail end it was just glowing gold, brighter than any aircraft i've ever seen. I travel towards us a bit to our left and flew overhead as it passes us we didn't hear a sound, there was total silence. The object travel of passed for another few minutes and as it got further away we saw some ireggular movements, quick side to side movement and quick up and down movements, after a bit of that it flickered to nothing and thats all I could see.
