Location: District Heights, MD
Shape: Oval
Duration:2 minutes
Very bright object shining like a star but in an oval shape, and moving extremely fast, without a smoke trail.

I regret not jotting down the actual date that I spotted a UFO in the 2nd week of August 2016. I didn’t think it was anything, until someone encouraged me that I wasn’t “seeing things” that didn’t exist.

I was walking the dog at approximately 6:30 pm. I saw an oval shape that shone like a very bright star. It moved at a speed faster than a jet, or anything I’ve ever seen, and it didn’t have a smoke trail.

I stood and watched until it went out of sight. It was way above the clouds. Usually when I see planes that high, I see a smoke trail and the speed appears to be somewhat slow. The speed is what caught my eye.
