I saw an object which I thought was a bright planet (I see every morning as I deliver newspapers). Instantly realizing the object was too large, and not placed where the planet usually is (lately).

I have lived in East Central Florida for 40 years and have seen hundreds of launches from Cape Canaveral. Using those sights as a reference, I saw this object zoom into space at a speed very much faster than any spacecraft I've seen.
