0:32 MST , St Anthony, ID, flashin star arcoss the sky high speed , trail part of travel distant

Standing on my front porch step , looking at the full Moon , I turned to my left , west , I saw a flashing star shape it moved very fast , viewed 180 degrees in the sky it was very clear , there were planes moving a inch at a time , this flashing star moved across the shy the full 180 degrees in seconds. I was in the military service and spend many hours standing watch.

I never in my life saw anything move so fast in the sky. I have seen rockets in the shy in my life time , but compared to the speed of this flashing star. 12:32 AM Mountain time. it traveled West to East. It was comparable to a star.I must say the mode of travel it was a craft. I would like to know if a rocket was fired from VAF Base, Santa Maria, Calif at that time. Many years ago , I worked there Construction. I must say this moved much faster.

I had to report this.Description of the object one item the size of a star , but very bright flashing across the shy.
