Shape: Light
Duration:15-20 seconds
Saw brief white light travel allong the horizon, stop midflight and then continue on a different course, at extreem rates of exellera

Me and a friend were outside catching worms to go fishing. We both saw a bright white light traveling in the sky. It was moving too slow to be a meteorite, and way too fast to be a plane.

After traveling parallel to the horizon it stopped mid flight for approximately 5 - 10 seconds. It then suddenly accelerated very rapidly away from us, and to the left and seemed to be gaining altitude. Within a few seconds it was gone. The whole sighting took less than 15 seconds.

((NUFORC Note: Source of report indicates a morning sighting. We suspect that he means a sighting during evening hours, but we cannot be certain. We will attempt to clarify the point. PD))
