Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Oservation of a craft that stopped and changed direction a a very high speed multiple times.

Grilling on my deck I observed what appeared to be an aircraft in the eastern sky in a regular pattern I have seen for decades where I live.

It displayed a flashing white light. I noticed a red light appear and then the craft stopped suddenly, It then changed direction to the north and sped up to a much higher speed. It then stopped and changed course suddenly again and continued north. I walked through my house and walked out the north entrance door. The aircraft was moving north where it stopped at some point and dropped at a high speed until other homes were blocking its view. I have never seen anything like this in my life.
