I was sitting n my deck facing east smoking a cigarette. There is a pond beyond my fence and some full grown ficus trees on the other side. I was looking into the clear sky's east ward at a 45 degree angle looking over the tops of the ficus across the pond. From over my head I saw something moving at a high rate of speed and as it past the tops of the trees it flashed. At first I thought it was just a shooting star, but shooting stars are high in the atmosphere and this couldn't have been more than 4-5,000 feet. It took a while for me to comprehend what occured and my memory of the flash sparked what I saw, a diamond shaped object that briefly flashed a white lite I have never seen before, left no trail and moved at extremely high velocity.
