Hi, A few nights ago I witnessed an event that I have never witnessed before. While standing on the front porch of my home, at approximately 11:45 p.m. I saw a bright light in the sky directly ahead of me. I looked at the bright light for a few seconds, perhaps four or five seconds, then the light began to slowly move to the right in an easterly direction. I then called my husband, who was just inside the door. I thought it was a satellite and wanted him to see it also. He came out, looked at the bright light moving, and said it might be a satellite. Then suddenly the light changed direction. It moved slowly once again, but this time to the north. It travelled in this direction for about five seconds. Then, it picked up speed and travelled the entire length of the sky in less than a second, and it disappeared. It moved faster than any human engineered craft could possibly move.

The light was bright white in color, but when it accelerated it turned to a bright orange.
