Duration:8 sec
White Fluorescent object movig extremely fast in multiple 90 deg turns due East of Kennewick, WA.

I was driving eastbound on Hwy240 in Kennewick Wa. on my way to work (only here for two weeks on a business trip). I was looking in the sky a little bit south east of the road because the moon was in an almost perfect crecent.

As I looked into the sky an object appeared just a bit to the lower right of the moon. (At this time in the morning it wasn't really dark out). The object was like a fluorescent light in the sky (Extremely bright and white). The shape wasn't very clear but the raident light kinda gave it a Seattle Space Needle outline look.

At first I was excited thinking that I was seeing a shooting star or some kind of satellite falling through the atmoshere. But was intrigued that it had very little light trail (like a meter etc). What happened next, will be remembered by me for the rest of my life. It stopped and it took a 90 deg angle back the other way. Then stopped again. It then took another 90 deg across the sky, stopped once again and ! then shot directly outward almost as if it shot straight to the right of the moon and dissapeared. I've seen my share of air shows and military jets perform..etc. I've never seen anything this fast nor maneuver the way that this object did. The thing I most remember, is when it stopped and turned back the other direction, I remember telling myself to clear my mind and focus on what I was seeing. I did so, and remember my hair standing up on the back of my neck. This was a great experience for me ans will never be forgotten.

I'm an engineer, a video gamer, an athlete, a dog owner, an uncle, a brother..etc ... But definetly not a nut job. I saw what I saw (alien craft, meteor, new military plane) whatever it was..and have no problem explaining to anyone. But, like most it seems, my sighting was short and now is gone. I keep replaying the scene in my head so that I don't forget the specifics and most importantly so that I don't skew any of the facts. As I want to remember as accurate as possible forever. (we've all played the telep! hone gam e). Thank you and good luck with this info.

P. S.--The main reason I'm sending this in, is that a guy from my work referred you, Doug Dunlap. He said he is a friend of yours. I also mainly submitted this, to see if anyone else had seen what I saw. There were plenty of other people on the highway at the same time as me. I asked a fellow co worker on the Hwy just moments after me if he had noticed the crecent moon, and he replied "oh yes definetly". I kew he would because the size of the moon and the perfect shape was right over the highway and was a great view. With the fact that the moon was hard to miss and everyone was most likely looking into the sky near it as I was, there had to be more people that saw this object as well. I would love to know I wasn't the only one!! Thank you for your time
