Duration:30 seconds
Fast moving star like ufo stops its course, lights up bright then shoots straight up.

Sitting outside watching the night sky when I noticed what I thought at first was a sattelite. This thing appeared and was moving rather swiftly toward the South West. The altitude seemed pretty high which is why I thought at first it was a sattelite but it was moving too fast. A few seconds after I began watching this thing it stopped, zig zagged back and forth a couple times then lit up extremley bright with a very white light which made it also appear larger in size. Right after it lit up all bright it changed direction and quickly started heading back in the direction it had just came from, stopped again then shot straight up and out of sight at incredible speed. This was absolutly not a sattelite or any conventional air craft. It was also silent and made no noise.
