and saw something that put the fear in me. What I saw was the fastest moving thing I can comprehend. It skittered or should I say skimmed across the sky in a split second, like it was wobbling as it done it's journey. Blue-white in color, I swear it scared me so much, not so much because I don't know what it is but because I don't know of anything that can do what it done.

1991. Laying on top of my LAV in Saudi Arabia near the Kuwait Border. I was on radio watch around 3 am. No moon , brilliant stars.
Its amazing in the desert 50 miles away from civilization.
At that time my USMC unit had unlimited use of our satellites for GPS location. We could see a lot of them .
Myself and our company gunny were laying down looking up at the stars and satellites. We saw coming out of the direct north horizon a bright white ' satellite' moving south at similar speed compared to the other satellite's. Then as it neared directly over our position it stopped. Maybe 20 degrees north of us to the north.
We both noticed it and sat up. We looked at it sitting there way up in the sky not moving at all. It stayed stationary for over 1 minute.
Then it shot directly west at incredible speed. Covered that half of the sky in about 2 seconds and was gone.
This occurred almost overhead. Pretty spectacular to have those kind of sightings. The more cigarette breaks one takes (di that for decades) the more one is outside and in a position to witness these things. Not that dying of cigs is any lifetime goal to be achieving…
