Departure Direction: North
Witness Direction: North
Description: I was travelling with my wife from lunch at grammys and saw a very bright light in the sky some distance away but clearly visible due to it's magnificense. It was 2:40pm, perfectly clear, fine sunny day, approx 29 degrees C, no clouds. Light was similar to a star (white) with 'extra glow' exuding horizontally and slightly darker / shadowy directly above. I am very familiar with aircraft and knew this was not an aircraft, no navigation lights and not moving.
After making an exclamation as to what the $@%# was in the sky I took off my sunglasses and put them back on, defocused and refocused my eyes. I watched this light for approx. 20 seconds before it accelerated at enormous speed northward and disappeared. I still have no explanation for what this might have been. Given the brightness of the day and irregularity / speed of movement I struggle to see how it could have been a sattelite or comet.
Color/Shape: White, similiar to star with extra light exuding left and rigtht.
Height & Speed: Height would have been approx 5000 feet. I did not see it arrive. Depature speed was ridiculously fast
TV/Radio/Press: Not that I have seen
