Duration:LESS THAN 1 SECOND
VERY, VERY FAST OBJECT

I WAS SCANNING THE SOUTHERN SKY TO LOCATE JUPITER/SATURN WITH 7X BINOCULARS FOR LATER TELESCOPE OBSERVING. AT AN ELEVATION OF ABOUT 30 DEGREES AND BINOCULAR FOCUS SET FOR STAR GAZING, A LARGE, POINTED ON BOTH ENDS, OVAL SHAPE, LIGHT COLORED, APPEARED AND WENT HORIZONTALLY FROM RIGHT TO LEFT. NO DETAILS OR MARKINGS SEEN AS IT APPEARED TO BE FAIRLY NEAR AND NOT IN GOOD FOCUS. TRAVEL SPEED WAS VERY FAST, RIGHT TO LEFT ACROSS THE BINOCULAR FIELD IN LESS THAN ABOUT 1/2 SECOND. AS AN AMATEUR ASTRONOMER FOR OVER 60 YEARS, I HAVE SEEN A NUMBER OF UNEXPLAINED OBJECTS. THIS OBJECT WAS DEFINITELY NOT TERRESTRIAL. MANY YEARS AGO I SAW AN OBJECT APPEAR AND DESCEND VERTICALLY AND MAKE A 90 DEGREE TURN TO HORIZONTAL WITH NO CHANGE IN SPEED AND DISAPPEAR , AGAIN IN LESS THAN A SECOND.
