I saw something at 4am on my paper route at age 12 I’ll never forget. At first I thought it was a falling star shooting sideways through the sky. But then it came to an abrupt stop and stood still for about 5 seconds. It then went right clear across the sky retracing it’s prior trajectory and came to a complete halt again.
The seconds later it went left taking off like a dart horizontally at it’s originial trajectory and out of my sight. It was bright white light. The entire episode lasted I’d say about 15-20 seconds. The sitting still time was about 15 seconds.
Something I’ll never forget seeing.
