|Upon leaving a friends house around 10:30pm, we walked outside the front door (facing east coming outside) and noticed a blinking light in the sky which was about 2miles away and around 300-400ft off the ground headed in our direction. The light was blinking red, white, and green in the same arythmic display as a modern commercial airplane, but very bright, much brighter than normal craft. However I passed this off as a plane, being an 8yr airforce vet I was around all sorts of aircraft and nothing caught my attention of being abnormal.
But then the aircraft banked left very hard, not a curved or even slightly tight bank that of a small single engine or even that of a helicopter, but an almost 90°degree turn and speed up very quickly heading north. The object continued to speed up and then banked left again heading west. It did not slow down or take a wide turn, this time it was a direct 90 degree turn. It traveled west for about 1mile in the matter of seconds. At this time the craft came to a dead stop. And when I mean dead stop I mean from a couple hundred miles an hour to complete stop with ZERO deceleration before stopping.
At this time the my wife and son are very afraid and get in the car begging me to get in. I am personally just in complete awe and excitement because I have never witnessed something behave in this nature. To me this was completely impossible and only something you see through CGI in movies.
The craft sat in place for about 5seconds and then continued heading west again slowly at first but picking up speed. I would estimate the craft traveled another mile before stopping completely in place yet again for maybe half a second then turned left again heading south at the same speed it was before it stopped. It then traveled for another 3-400yds very quickly before coming to a dead stop again and hovering in place for another 10sec.
It slowly headed west for maybe 100yds and then banked right, heading north, leaving my line of sight behind the house in front of us. I jumped in the car and tried to get my wife to follow it. Her and my son were extremely scared and worried and she ignored my wishes to try and follow the object. I never gained sight of the objec6 again.
