Characteristics: Lights on object

A star sized object circled the sky and then shot straight out of sight at very great speed.

It was in the summer and I am not sure of the year. It could have been l958 or 59. I was outside and looked at the sky, which was full of stars. I noticed that one of the stars was moving in a very large circle around the sky. For as high as it must have been, it must have been moving at a great speed. It continued this for awhile and then it shot off straight out of sight at a much greater speed. It was about the size of one of the stars, but brighter. Other people outside saw it also. I called the Civil Defense call line and found that it was busy for quite awhile. When I finally got through, they said that they had many calls about the same thing. I am a high school teacher
