Location: Newark, DE
Shape: Light
Duration:4 minutes
White haze/light moving at amazing speeds. Far greater than any known military or commercial aircraft

I went to bed early on this night and awoke around 12:15am, to a thumping noise. Although I do not believe the noise is related, I somehow felt the need to look out my window. I pulled the blinds back and noticed a white hazy object, hovering above the treeline across the street from where I live. The object was at a distance of anywhere between 5-7 miles away. It was a particularly clear night and the stars were out. It was a white light moving in a small circlular patter, very eratically. I stared in disbelief and then walked outside to observe. It was very quiet. The object hovered for about 3 minutes off to the west and then suddenly shot directly to the north very rapidly, maintaining altitude and distance. I continued to observe the light for about another minute, before it shot off at an amazing speed toward the north, northeast.
