|I got out of my car and looked up like I always do. I noticed an incredibly fast aircraft with a very unusual lighting pattern traveling from east to west. There was a cloud bank above it as I could see it against the cloud background. I checked ATIS at KFPR (St. Lucie County Airport) and they were reporting SCT110 so the object had to be lower than FL 110 (11,000 feet).
Object was very, very small – all I could see were the flashing lights. I’m not sure how big it was as I don’t know exactly how high it was, only that it was lower than 11,000 feet.
When it got to the end of the cloud bank, it went vertical (the lights changed aspect and began to dim), then it came back down (another aspect change in the lights and became brighter) and then went back the same way it came (toward the east)… The whole incident lasted about 30-40 seconds.
