|Bright white light traveling perpendicular at an unbelievable speed across the tree line in the distance.
I'm a High School student and was doing routine dishes at 630 am Thursday morning when I looked out the window in front of the sink to witness a rapidly moving bright white light had caught my attention. It was traveling east to west along the tree line in the distance at a high rate of speed. I live on a large mountain and visually followed the light for approximately 3-5 seconds across the sky along the tree line in the distance until it disappeared out of sight. I'm still in awe at what I witnessed! I've seen many "falling" stars and this by all means was no falling star. This light was traveling straight without any angle. The falling stars that I've seen "fall," as in decline or pitch down even slightly, this bright white light was moving perfectly perpendicular across the sky.
The odd thing is that I remember talking to my Boyfriend and his Father over this past summer about an occurrence they witnessed several years ago in Sabattus. I believe it was Fall of 2008(estimating) They had said they were driving North up a large hill heading out of town on Route 126 in Sabattus when my Boyfriends father slammed on the brakes as they were cresting the hill as he heard my Boyfriend scream, "Oh my god Dad,..Your gonna hit it.." And in that split second they both said they saw the brightest of white lights zoom in & out of sight.
My Boyfriend saw it first moving impossibly fast towards them at a high speed downward angle and when he screamed, still focused on it, his Father only caught a split second of it moving incredibly fast upward, as fast as his head and eyes could turn and follow it for that split second. They both agreed it was no falling star...this light had changed directions from traveling at a downward pitch to instantly changing its di! rection to an upward angle. I remember them telling me how amazingly bright white and unbelievably fast it was. They said it spooked them both and they remember it as if it were yesterday.
