Was playing golf, saw white glowing object in the sky manoevering rapidly. Object was very high, almost in line with cirrus clouds as it was a cold day. Lost sight of object after a while.

A white glowing object, much like a sphere. The object was almost vertical above me moving rapidly from east to west in short bursts.The golf course is near Waterkloof Air Force base. At first it looked like a weather balloon but it was very high and moving to fast to be a balloon. Due to the fact that the object was high and fast my friend only caught a short 3 second glimpse of the object himself. I eventually lost sight of the object. The object remained stationary at one time, that's when i first noticed it.
