Location: Ripley, MS
Shape: Light
Duration:20:33
Looked like a star then started moving slowly. After a few minutes it streaked off as if it where the speed of light.

My wife, her brother, and I were standing outside of our home when we saw what looked like a star. It was motionless at first and then it slowly started moving. I told my wife it was just a satellite or aircraft. After I said that the object took off. It streaked across the the sky faster than any man-made aircraft. Just guessing I would say it was going about 10 or 20 thousand miles per hour.
