Almost rotating around the star..then.its glow got shot out into space with incredable speed. we could still see it it headed north. but by this time, it was well above any distance in which a any commercail airline would fly.As it proceeded out into the atmosphere, we could see a trail coming from the back of the object.This was the second sighting by myself.and the first for the others that were with me.
