UFO white light reported accelerating at extremely high rate of speed spotted in San Diego!!!!

I had eaten pizza at one of my favorite places about an hour prior, so I wasn't having low blood sugar or anything like that. I have no know medical conditions (i.e. macular degeneration, diabetes, epilepsy, etc.) that could possible account for my observation. I hadn't had any alcohol, nor any other drug (prescription/recreational) substance, nor do I have a history of using any such substance. I don't wear corrective lenses and I have really good night vision. I am alert & orientated as to person, place, and time. I believe this statement is given to the best of my knowledge and of my own free will, without seeking any personal gains. I feel strongly enough about my experience as to overcome any and all concerns / reprocussions that might arise out of my making this statement. And, I had washed my car earlier that day so the windshild was unobstructed! I was proceeding East bound on Route 52E just prior to the Regents road off ramp. I could see military planes in the pattern at Miramar Air Station. I noticed a white light at approximately 2 O'clock middle (not high or low). The light appeared to be between me and Miramar. Initially the light appeared to be stationary and looked like a star and then it took off and I saw it start to accelerate at an incredibly fast rate of speed until it was out of sight. All this happened in less than a second. I was flabbergasted and I had to pull over to the right shoulder and come to a stop just prior to the exit sign.

I have taken three semmesters of Calculus based college Physics and I am familiar with Newtonian mechanics as well as optics, and I have taken the Nikon school of photography. I am a primary health care provider. Prior to this sightening I was a disbeliever in UFO's. I've seen numerous shooting stars, I am familiar with the F-18 Hornet, F-14's, F-15's and numerous other Fighter & civilian plane/jet flight characteristics. I've seen missle test flights, and NASA rocket launches. I solomonly sware that I can't account for this visual sightening based on any of my life's experiences. It wasn't an optical illusion or reflection or something that can be explained on my perspective in relation to its course of motion. And, it was traveling at such a high rate of speed that I can't even conceive of anything going that fast!!! I don't know if it is a space ship or whatever it is but I can tell you that it had enough of an impact on me to motivate me to make this report which I wouldn't ordinarily do unless I think it was pretty significant! Because it went from a stand still to an acceleration it is difficult for me to explain its flight characteristics as a natural phenomen. I would say that it is a UFO. The was no visible trail nor any sound coming from it that I could hear.
