Location: Marietta, GA
Shape: Light
Duration: 5-8 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Light appears in sky the suddenly flashes brightly before streaking in different direction in night sky

I was taking the trash out, and on my way inside, I was looking at the moon and the stars. There were some clouds but not many.

I then saw what I thought was a dim satellite flying across the sky, and within seconds, it went black, when suddenly a very bright flash appeared, and the object flew off at an incredible rate of speed in a different direction. I have never seen anything like this and I'm hoping by posting this someone else will come forward who saw it also.

I could not tell what shape it was because I could only see what appeared to be one light. It was not flashing which is why I thought it was a satellite. No satellite has ever moved like that though.

I immediately ran inside with goosebumps on my arms and told my wife, and then called my brother to tell him what had just happened. The entire event only lasted a few seconds but I will remember that forever. WOW!! I'm not sure what I saw but it was amazing.
