Duration:3 to 5 minutes
This object exucuted manuvers that no man made object could at speeds exceeding any winged craft.

In the spring of '98 around 9:00 at night,I observed an object traveling from west to east at a high rate of speed (about 10 times the speed of a jetliner).The object then slowed to about 3/4 its original speed and made a knife-edged 90 degree turn to the right,then sped up to its original speed,made another 90 degree turn to the left,traveled about 1/4 mile,made another turn to the right.It continued this until it disappeared behind a group of trees.The object was a single white point of light, high in the sky,roughly guessing about 10 to 20 thousand feet.It didn't make a sound and it never flashed or blinked out once and there was no other aircraft around.

This was observed by myself and another person.
