Crazy reddish star object that can fly at incredible speeds

Jamaica – 3rd week of may 2009, approximately 2am. Negril, Looking west out over the Caribbean Sea.

Watching the stars with my wife under some of the clearest skies I’ve ever experienced. I located and pointed out a orangish-red star that seemed out of place. This star began to move across the sky, slow at first, changing directions every so often. My wife and I were amazed and were fixed on the object. The speed of the object increased, and it seemed to be flying toward and away from earth, almost showing off to us. Then, all of a sudden, the object made one last flight toward earth, getting slightly larger. The object then stopped, paused for 2 seconds.. What happens next is incredible and I will do my best to put it into words. The object accelerated away from us, and earth at an astonishing rate. The object went from one of the brightest stars in the sky to completely gone in a matter of seconds. We watched the object get smaller and smaller as it sped into space and completely out of sight. We looked around, hoping someone else had watched all of this un! fold as well, and luckily, there was another couple about 20 feet away that were looking right at us, mouths open. They had seen it to. I never quite believed until that moment. It’s one of those events in life that changes your perspective on things forever. Gives me goose bumps every time I think about it.
