|High altitude fast bright light
At about 6:04 AM, I was leaving for work when a bright white pinpoint of light not quite overhead caught my attention. It was traveling very fast and seemed to be at a very high altitude. It was traveling in a generally north to south direction. It covered an approximately 30 degree arc in about three seconds. At first, I thought it must be a satellite but then it slightly altered its flight path twice from left to right in a kind of jerky motion. After that I lost sight of it as the tree in my front yard blocked the view. The light was much brighter than the background stars. The weather was absolutely clear.
When I arrived at work, I mentioned to my boss that I’d seen this strange light. He said that when he had left his home in Ana, Texas, he had seen the same light and though he had seen it when it was closer to the southern horizon. He said because it was so fast and so bright he thought it was “a falling star.” But he said he had not seen it pass overhead.
