It was a meteor like object that moved at angles and no curves at a high rate of speed.

I have been an amateur astronomer for over forty years.

On Monday, May 30 at 10:50 P.M.

I stepped outside during a break in a show. The weather was warm and humid, the sky was clear.

I noticed what I thought to be a meteor flashing overhead from the west. The color of the object was white-orange.

The object immediately made angular turn to the south, then two more after.

The object then proceeded to the west southwest at a very high rate of speed.

Total time observed was 6 to 10 seconds.
