|Very fast, silent, moving craft enveloped by vapor, @ about 8000 feet AGL traveling SW to NW then W
Standing on my back porch having a smoke, looked to South East, saw a very fast moving craft, had yellow, green, and red glow enveloped in a shroud of vapor as if it was an aircraft moving very fast. Apperared to be at around, 8000 feet AGL, I had to move very quickly across my back yard, to follow it across the sky traveling South East to Northwest but about halfway across the sky above my house it made a few jerky motions and changed to a more westerly direction and then was out of view. I waited for some sound as it had to be going greater then the speed of sound at that altitude but no sound ever came, it was absolutely silent. About three minutes later I went back outside and a small light piston aircraft at about the same altitude was seen going from South East to North West.
