UFO Sighting in Ormond-by-the-Sea, Florida on 2017-08-10 21:20:00 - An illuminated object flew in multiple directions across the sky at an extremely high altitude, and high rate of speed.
My wife and i were outside, in the backyard, looking at the stars, because the sky was unusually clear. we had been observing the stars and constellations for approx. five minutes when the object appeared, suddenly, out of the west, headed east out over the ocean there is this extremely fast, at extremely high altitude, brightly (white) lit object that transits the sky in less than ten seconds... stops... remained motionless for a few seconds, then flew southwest back inland making erratic movements, kind of jittery and zig-zaggy, then abruptly stopped again and remained motionless. the speed was incredible.The object then flew south/southwest until it was lost in the illumination (glow) of the city lights of daytona beach. i was an air force brat, and a veteran of 14 yrs military service in the us army, and have seen all types of high performance military aircraft flying... this was not a plane or satellite. never seen anything remotely this fast. it made erratic changes in direction, and complete stops with no perceptible slowing. i'm actually a very rational person. a highly trained and experienced observer. i've seen the iss, space shuttle, fighters fueling from tankers, high performance aircraft,and numerous satellites over the years... never anything like this. at first we were excited, as we thought it was a satellite, then our feelings turned to awe as we watched it perform incredible maneuvers, radically changing direct, coming to abrupt stops, all from very high rates of speed.
