Duration:1 minute
A small silvery object seen go 0-5000 mph in a blink of an eye, in Richland, Washington.

Walking in Howard Amon park with two friends around noon. The sky was all blue and the sun was high above me. Looking over towards the I-182 bridge I noticed a bright light in the sky. Like a star and silver but within our atmosphere.

I stopped in my tracks and waited for it to move thinking it might of been a plane reflecting light. The object did not move for nearly 20 seconds as I watched. I walked over to my friend and tapped him on the arm and said "hey do you see that". As I pointed at the object the unbelievable happened. RIght when my fingertip aligned with my eye and the object it sped away at a rate of speed I couldn't not guess.

But, If I know a plane fly's at about 300-400 mph, the object I saw was going at about 5000 mph. It sped away south. Neither of my friends saw it. I am the only witness.

The owner of a restaurant near the park also has a sighting reported on here at a later date about 500 yards from where I saw mine.
