I witnessed this event when I was 17 years old and had just entered the army.

I was awaiting what was called the cattle trucks to transport our company back to the barrackes. I was looking up at the stars as I was standing there and observed what I thought was skylab. A light came across the sky and as it was directly overhead it came to a complete stop.

It sat there for was seemed like a full minute and then it shot directly up and out of sight in a blink of the eye.

It was many years after the experience before I ever spoke of the event. I truly beleive that what I saw was a UFO observing a military installation and am unaware if any of the people that were with me saw the object.
