The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
I was outside my home looking up at the starts on a clear summer night, when i saw this bright star-like stationary object in the sky. the object grew brighter until an abrupt bright flash that covered the entire visible night sky. immediately following the bright flash, the object shot higher into the night sky at a speed that i could only compare to a shooting star. it was out of sight within a second, if i was to estimate. i immediately called a couple friends to ask if they had seen it and i watched the local news closely for the next couple days, thinking that someone else had to have seen it, however, i never came across any said reports.
