Shape: Disk
Duration:1 minute
Observed a black disc shaped object moving slowly and occasionally emitting a sparkling light.

On September 5, 2020 at 3:23 pm I was stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Ikea Drive and North Avenue East when I had observed a black object in the sky in front of me at about 1,000 to 2,000 feet in the air. The shape seemed to resemble a disc. What caught my eye was that the object occasionally emitted a very bright sparkling reflective light, as if the object had mirrors reflecting the sun light. The intermittent sparkling light would last a couple of seconds. The object appeared to move very slowly south of my location. I had lost sight of the object when video was taken. Upon viewing the video at slow motion and zoomed in, I could see the object ascending at a high rate of speed and sharply turning towards the west and accelerating at hypersonic speed and out of view. The video at around 3 seconds shows the black object to the left of the utility pole just above the lowest wire and then it travels to the upper right side of the video frame! and out of view. The total event lasted about 1 minute.
