|I was sitting on the front step of my apartment facing north/northeast when I seen what honestly appeared to be a flashlight coming from above me. I looked up thinking a street light was flickering but when I made eye contact with the light it actually was in the sky.
The sky here is very polluted with other lights and different interferences which usually prevent us from even seeing stars in the sky. Tonight it is very nice and clear but still no stars. I see this square light kind of blue and green at the same time almost like looking at a diamond. It seemed as though it had different facets to it. It changed colors once or twice and I seen a bit of yellow. The square was sitting still when I seen it and in about 2 seconds it started moving extremely quickly. It was moving towards the east at what felt like the fastest thing I've ever seen. I love planes and am very familiar with fighter jets but this thing was crazy. It got so far away so quick that it simply got smaller and smaller until it vanished. It didn't look as though it was moving with the shape of the earth. It looked like it was moving up and out of the atmosphere. It didn't look like it burned out but just got so far away so fast.
