Location: Burbank, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Bright light, rapid change of direction. High speed.

I am a firefighter and was leaving home early in the morning to go to the station. It was still dark out and i was driving North East down my street.

At the stop sign at the end of my street I stopped to adjust my radio. I was looking in a north east direction when I noticed a very bright light that looked like a star. I noticed it moving back and forth slowly, not too far in either direction. I looked in my rear view mirror to see if it could be a light reflecting off my window but saw no lights or cars.

As I watched the light it began to move down a little faster and then stopped and shot straight up at steep angle and vanished. It had no flashing lights and no color other than bright white. I have never seen any other aircraft reverse it's angle as fast or move as fast as I have seen this object move. I live near Burbank airport and see lots of aircraft everyday and night but have never seen anything like this.
