|object travels very fast horizonally and then shoot straight up at 90 degree angle
Just found your site. I am guessing at the month and day. Sometime in fall.
Observed a star in sky brighter that others as I entered driveway. I have a clear view of the sky. Stopped and onserved. I seemed to get bigger and smaller, but not a lot. Then it got bright, shrunk down to a normal size star, the then shot off horizontally at an incredible speed, slowed down, the turned at a righ angle and shot up vertically into the clouds as fast as could be.
Natural things don't move this way. Window was down. It wasn't glare on glass etc.

However, that is a guess. We would like to correspond with the witness to confirm the date, but he provides no contact information. We would like to have the individual contact our Center.
