Globe of white light zooms directly at me while I look out my window at night. veers off and zooms away.

I was laying in my bedroom trying to get to sleep. There are large windows that extend across the entire south wall of my room. I rolled over to face the south and look out the window. About forty yards away, floating in my backyard, was a ball of light. It was about the size of a large globe. The light was a bright, pure, white. Before I could hardly register what I was seeing, the light zoomed directly at me with incredible speed. Astonishingly, the globe was silent, and did not seem to disturb the night air. For a split second I was face to face with this thing. I jumped because I thought it was going to hit me. Then it veered off quickly to the right and moved rapidly around the side of my house and was gone. I tried to run into the other room to see if I could still see it, but I never saw it again. This incident was the weirdest thing that's ever happened to me. I did not believe in UFOs. I sill don't know what to make of what I saw. Must be either spiritual or extraterrestrial.
