Shape: Light
Duration:less then 3 seconds
Bright round object at low altitude that proceeded east and then vertical out of sight within 2-3 seconds of eye contact.

As I was walking back towards my apartment with my dog, I saw a bright blue/white object in the sky that appeared to be at a low altitude. It seemed to me as if it did not want to be seen. I saw it out of peripheral for a second or two before i made direct eye contact. I was facing east when I saw the object. It was a circular pulsating bright light.

With in 2-3 seconds of me making direct eye contact with it, it shot off at an extremely high rate of speed almost completely vertical to a high altitude out of sight/atmosphere. It did look as if it curved upward by traveling east for a split second then shooting upward. It traveled fast enough where the light that it was giving off formed a "tail" of its course that lasted a split second. I am a college educated young professional who has never made any report like this in my life. I am 100 percent sure that this was not any type of man made aircraft and honestly have never been so scared in my entire life. Unfortunately because of the duration of the event, I have no pictures or video. I didn't see anyone else outside but myself at the time.
