large boomerang shaped craft that glowed an irridescent white light. approx. 4am ..... the 4th week of september........ moving at a steadily rapid speed in a south eastern (out of the north west) direction. approx. amount of time in sight : 30-45 seconds

i was alone in my backyard at approx. 4am in the last week of september, 1998 having a smoke. i was gazing at the stars {my usual nightly activity!} when i saw this boomerang type shaped "glow" heading towards the south east out of the north west. the glow seemed to stay in form but sometimes it would slightly shift into almost a striaght line. then back to its original boomerang form. it seemed to have a bright luminous white glow {sometimes a little pale pinkish or pale green} about it. it moved rather quickly and at a steady pace. the glow was like an irridescent type glow though. it was almost like the aurora borealis. i couldnt believe what i was seeing. i know the night sky well. this was like nothing i had ever seen before.
