I know what you mean mate, catches you off guard and by the time you think "get the camera", It's over. I can relate to this, I've seen two on separate occasions (one in broad daylight, excellent view with the Mrs) but the other I saw at night taking the bin out, sounds similar.
I understand planes and choppers well enough to know the difference (regularly crossing east/west vice versa to Melbourne airport) and did my usual thing of looking up at the stars after placing the bin. I was actually watching a satellite cross (roughly south to north, like a faint star if you haven't seen one and no flashing or strobe) then at about 45 degrees ahead, I thought I saw what looked like Venus (ultra bright). It didn't flash or strobe but went from standstill to moving directly overhead (north to south) opposite the path of the satellite. There was no sound at all, it stayed at the same intensity (looking like Venus at It's brightest) even as it passed over my right shoulder. It then faded rapidly to an intense red pinpoint of light and vanished.

You say you were looking through your glass doors, perhaps a fissure then, you pass a place where a light from outside passes through it at a particular angle and it spreads out as you look at it. you stare for a second and while straining your eyes move your head forward a little, now the light doesn't line up with the crack anymore and disappears. wondering what you just saw you take a step closer and your eyes line up once more. intrigued you take a deep breath, your chest heaves and filling with air you straighten up and it passes out of sight once more.

Great read Wag, I have never seen anything like that myself but it certainly sounds like "something". I wonder how many of them diguise themselves as stars???
P.S. Your home sounds lovely!
