Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
Bright light going at high speed completely reversed direction and then disappeared.

We had just taken our dogs out for the last time tonight, and we were sitting in chairs on the patio. There were some clouds, but we could see planes and stars, and I was looking up at the stars, when I noticed a very bright light moving quickly across the sky from west to east. It was way above the plane traffic and it was really going fast.

I told my husband to look at it, and he said he thought it was probably a plane in the Jetstream and was so high up because it was bypassing Denver.

So he went back to watching the dogs and I kept watching the object for about another 5 seconds when suddenly it completely reversed direction and went back to the west at warp speed and disappeared. It wasn't hidden by the clouds because I watched for it to reappear but it never did. When it reversed direction it didn't turn or waver it just went the other way in the same line it was traveling in.
