While on Security patrols at my workplace,I observed a brilliant light that kept increasing in illumination streaking high across the sky at around 02:50 hrs this morning. Thinking it might have been a supersonic aircraft on fire, I observed it keenly, wondering what I should do next. But it moved very very fast, slowed and paused for awhile,increasing speed disappearing, and again reappearing, but now in lesser luminosity. It occured to me that I should capture a picture at least before it did its disappearing act, and was luckily able to get two pictures on the office cellphone before it became invisible.

It emitted neither sound, no smoke trail, and it was moving in a straight direction (South East). Seemed that the object sensed my increasing surprise, excitement and observation, that it immediately responded by reducing its brilliance, and gradually faded away from my vision.

I keeny awaited its return, and checked for any other object that could be following it. But there was nothing else in the sky, except for the stars.

Since I am alone on duty, I could not inform anyone else. But working near a sensitive area, I forwarded a security report as required by me.

The sky was very clear, and visibility was excellent, unlike yesterday when it was foggy. Having seen meteorites before, I am positive that it was neither a meteor, nor a reflection, and it was moving too fast for a weather balloon.

It seemed to be able to sense my alert curiosity, and immediately responded by reducing its brilliance as if in response. It emanated immense light, but cast no shadow did not emit any sound or odour.

I have to add that this object moved with such immense power and brilliance and speed that my first impression was that it was the end of the world!
