Location: Cypress, TX
Shape: Disk
Duration: 5-10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
lighted disk hovering about 200ft up in the air about 100ft ahead of me and immediately flew backward and upward at an angle

I left my house at 5:19a the morning of Friday, September 27, 2019 a running route I often took but not usually that early in the morning. I had just passed the two mile mark in my route turning the corner on the path about to run parallel to the busiest street around. There were a decent number of people out in their cars waiting at the light or driving on their way to work. As I rounded the corner going left (north on Fry road), I noticed a very bright strange disk shape object hovering about 100ft ahead of me and about 200ft up in the air over the CVS ahead of me. It was extremely bright. The shape was very odd, the disk was elongated from left to right (about an 1.5 inches if I held my finger up in front of me) and the lights were on the side of it. It was silent and the morning was also pretty silent except for the cars. I wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't turned that corner. As I looked up at it, it hovered for a couple seconds and then flew backward and upward at an angle into space until it turned into nothing. from the time it flew off until the time it disappeared was probably 1 second. It was faster than anything I'd ever seen and the angle at which it flew backward was not natural to an airplane. Also, when it left it was silent and made no noise. I stopped and caught my breath from running and shock and looked around so see if anyone was near and had seen but I was the only one on the trail that morning. The light changed to green and the cars started moving as if nothing had happened. I continued my run and made it back home at about 6:15a after a total of 5 miles ran in the loop. I didn't see it again and I haven't seen anything like it here since. For a description of myself: I was 29 years old at the time, Female, white, non-smoker, athletic competitive runner and working full time.
