Location: Canby, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Small white light in the sky exhibited extreme speed and maneuvers

At the above listed time and date, I was watering a logging road south of Canby, California. I had just finished watering a stretch of the logging road and had returned to the Pit River Bridge near the intersection of County Road 175 and Centerville Road. I was looking in the northwest sky when I noticed a small bright light moving at a very rapid rate across the sky traveling east. As I watched the light it slowed to a stop several times, and then it would accelerate very rapidly. As it reached its fasted observed speed, it would suddenly change direction 180 degrees with out slowing down. I observed the light perform this maneuver three times before is sped away and disappeared in the eastern sky. The duration of the observation was approximately two minutes. The object consisted of only one white light. No other lights were observed on or about the object.
