Duration: 10-15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Glinting metallic object moving at a rapid speed

We were in our boat on Smith Lake when we saw a glinting metallic object in the sky. It looked to be silvery and it seemed to be traveling as the same speed as us (like the moon seems while in a car). All of a sudden, it sped up rapidly and traveled very far away and out of sight in a matter of 7-10 seconds.
