The strangest light I have ever seen, and the fastest accelleration I have ever seen.

I was sitting on my front step on the evening reported, and heard a jet and was watching it travleing from West to East, when a flash of white light cauget my eye in the South. I wached it strobe and travle in a Northernly direction until it was almost directly over head. It was at a tremendous altitude, as compared to the jet that passed by. When it got to the point almost directly overhead, it emmitted a very bright flash of white light, then very suddenly curver to travle in the direction of North by North East, and accellerated at a tremendous burst of speed. I witnessed it travle over the Eastern horizon within seconds after it began it's accelleration. when it began it's acceleration and changed direction it became redish in color, but was too high to make out any detail of shape or sound.

I called a Denver news station, WB 2 News, and reported it to that entity, to which I was not asked any info, only that they would make some phone calls, but I was not told to whom.
