High speed UFO possible sighting.

Retired military aviation specialist noted extremely bright steady white lighting at upper atmosphere level. Traveled from southern horizon two thirds toward northern horizon. Traveled distance in less than one minute. Sopped to hover at the northernmost juncture, reversed course approximately 120 degrees, then disappeared from view at an rapid pace almost vertically. Expertise noted that object travelled at hypersonic speed with abrupt change of direction and azimuth not consistant with man-made object. G-forces evident beyond human tolerance, and no exhaust trail or sound of sound barrier being broken.
