I once studied architecture and instead became a gent. In the east-northeast of Colorado Springs in the Garden of the Gods area an event occurred in the sky.

A silver pill shaped light appeared into the sky and then moved at a super rate of speed. I will add more math details to attempt to calculate speed and size of this object according to the first memory of it. It appeared with alacrity. I was not looking directly at the spot where it appeared but because it just appeared so fast that my eyes registered the bright silver light in the east that I witnessed it move so quickly. It did not slide into view. It “turned on” as one would a switch. I surmise that either I seen it enter into view and zoom off into the mountain range. Or that it entered into visible sight and kept its momentum. The actual sighting lasted one second or less and the time from the moment I registered a event happening by sight to when I recognized this elliptical silver bight light move very quickly. Aren’t comets always like yellowish because when they are burning in the entry of the atmosphere they get superhot and burn? This one was like a low power purple florescent light. Had I been able to see it wink out in the sky like normal I wouldn’t be writing this but it was far enough that a building across the street hid the rest of its final moments in the visible sky.
