Duration:10 Minutes
I saw a light in the sky, looking much like a bright star. When I looked closer it was moving slowly up, then it shot up into the air.

I was looking out of my bedroom window, I noticed an unusually bright star in the sky. Looking closer I noticed that it was slowly moving up. I thought that it was my imagination or a trick with my eyes so I went to my window to look properly. To my astonishment it was moving up, very slowly however, after about 1 or 2 minutes it shot up into the air, probably taking no longer than a second to be totaly out of sight. The object was about 30 degrees above the horizon and was in the North-East. I couldnt predict distance at all due to the object having no particular shape or features. If it wasnt moving I would have thought it as being a bright star. Since it was I automatically thought either sattalite or aircraft, but no sattalite or aircraft or anyother craft that I know of has that accelerarion and moving ability.
