Duration:2 minutes
Unknown craft aerobatic and very fast.

While walking my dog, I always watch the sky when I hear a jet as we live so close to Pensacola NAS to see if the Blue Angels are around. I did not see any in the area, but an extremely high object caught my eye. I can't be positive of the shape due to the height it was flying but it traveled approximately 1 foot in sight then slowed to almost a stop, did a 360 degree turn (in a space about the size of my fingernail) and took off at approximately 3x the speed it was traveling and disappeared into the clouds. The object was heading West to East and finally headed Southwest. I have never seen any jet perform a 360 degree turn in this small of space and at that height.

Object was white in color and the weather was sunny with feathery clouds.

If I had to guess at the height, I would say it was 40,000 to 50,000 feet.
