Description: I was watching the Eurovision song contest in my living room (which helped me remember the date because this happened 8 years ago) when I felt compelled to look out the window, I saw in the sky at about a 40/45 degree angle above the horizon what appeared to be a sphere maybe 2 or 3 times the brightness of venus travelling from south to north, it scared me at the time as I had never seen anything like that before and I live under a flight path and have also seen the ISS many times so I know it was not a normal plane or satellite, especially for the following reason, I watched the object as it crossed the sky at a constant speed like a satellite would but faster, however after maybe 1 minute the object changed its angle slightly upward, accelerated greatly and left the atmosphere in about 5 seconds. If it was a satellite, it would have just kept travelling at a constant speed until it passed over the horizon, it wasn't an airplane because it left the atmosphere. So it was in the true sense of the word, a UFO.
