Duration:5 seconds or less
Bright shiney object hovered, darted, stopped then "disappeared" at military base airstation in broad daylight afternoon SanDiego.

Driving down the main road leading on and off the military base in the early afternoon when to my left in the sky I seen a bright white light, hovering in the sky about the Airstation and runway area. It wasn't too high, but it was high enough not to be confused as one of the Tower lights or attached to any structure from the ground. It was very bright. As if metal was reflecting off the Sun's light casting a blinding glow. It appeared to be flat and circular, but long..almost like a "Cigar". Almost as soon as I noticed it, from down the street riding in my vehicle, it appeared to have been "spooked" or scared away. It ascended away from my direction so fast from its hovering point (Point A) to it's secondary point (Point B) but left a trail of light stretching behind it that connected the two points, and then from "Point B" it "zipped" away at an unbelievable speed until it simply vanished completely once it reached the clouds as if it entered what I can on! ly assume was some type of "Warp Speed" at a speed I have never seen any man-made aircraft reach in all my military years. This "light" went from a "Hover" state, to a darting light, to an unbelievable speed until it vanished, all within seconds. Its' physical appearance was as real and apparent as any other "aircraft" in the sky would've been. This happened in broad daylight in the early afternoon, so it could not have been mistaken for any "known" piloted aircraft that I've ever seen or came across for it was "too small". And it moved almost instinctively, as if the craft itself had its own "ability". The conduct of this unidentified object was definitely "abnormal" flight behavior, darting or zipping across the sky from one point to another in one second, then halting; taking off from a halted position at great speeds; vanishing or disappearing out of the sky. There was no noticeable sound, no smoke trail from any visible or known thrusters or engines, Just a sreak of br! ight, white light.
