Location: Sierra Vista, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:7 seconds
A very fast craft turned 90 degrees without slowing or banking, traveling apprx mach one at 20,000 ft.

The object was traveling in a northwesterly direction at approx 20,000 feet, at a speed over double a commercial jet, then it changed direction at a 90 degree turn "instantly" towards the east and excellerated until it was out of sight! The sky was clear, great visibility.

USAF testing maybe? To further explain, the lite ball didn't turn, bank or slow, it was like you draw a line on a paper and then turn right,like the letter "L"! This wasn't a jet, no noise what so ever; emagine a huge spot lite on the front of a very, very fast craft is what i saw..

I retired five years ago from 45 years in the marine and aircraft industries.
