Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Bright silver fast moving light in the sky made a quick 180 degree turn, comtrail photographed.

I was in the woods deer hunting this afternoon 11/16/2011 at 4pm.

A sudden bright silver light caught my attention in the sky over my head approaching fast from the west. It was bright like a camera flash but sustained for the 5 seconds it was in view. The object traveled in a wide circle 180 degrees in the sky overhead leaving a white comtrail returning to the west where it came from. Object was real fast, only in view 5 seconds, however I photograped the comtrail and submit the photos along with this report. Sound was hissing air sound, not real loud.

Location I was at is a woods west of Springfield Ohio, Clark County. Woods location is surrounded by highways St.Rt.41 to the West and South, Upper Valley Pike to the East and Fox Hollow Road to the North. My specific location was about 3/4 mile North West of the Upper Valley Mall and intersection of Ross Lane and Upper Valley Pike. Wright Patterson AFB is about 12 miles to the South West. The directi! on the object came from and returned to is due West.
