Location: Melbourne, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration:12 seconds
I was driving South on 95 and saw a yellowish round aircraft that went from West to East. What amazed me was it went from one side of the sky to the other in about 12 seconds and then suddenly disappeared. It was very high in the sky and moved at a rate of speed I've never witnessed before.

At first I thought it was a falling star but it went directly horizontal across the sky. I've checked news reports to see if anyone else saw it, but haven't seen any other reports.. I've timed all other aircraft's in the sky and nothing comes close to what I saw. I say about 12 seconds because after watching for about 3 seconds, I started counting- because the rate of speed was phenomenal. It did not have a tail, it was a yellowish round ball that moved from one side of the horizon to the other but seemed to disappear when it got over open water. I'm hoping someone else saw it and will come forward. I travel for my job and spend a lot of time on the road and this is the first time I cannot decipher what I witnessed.
