Full Description of event/sighting: I went out to smoke a cigarette at about 1 am on the morning of May 5th. My patio faces South, and I was looking around the night sky with binoculars (for earlier tonight I had a strange sighting that continued until I arrived home at approx 11 pm, and only ended an hour or so ago *12 am*) and just took notice of all the stars I couldn't see with my naked eye. Venus was at about 10:00 o'clock in my line of sight where I began standing, and I moved to the side of the patio-putting Venus at about 1:00 o'clock in my sight. I had just put the binoculars down when a flash of light, up and to my right, caught my eye. I quickly looked up and saw a golden/yellow ball of light shot through the night sky-it seemed to maintain direction for a good half second (leaving a trail of light behind it) before quickly slowing down, making a quick 45 degree backwards movement, and shooting back forward and disappearing. This whole sequence lasted only a few seconds, but the trailing/illuminated light left by this movement formed a slightly angled Z shape (if the top and bottom lines were longer and the / was minimally sized at best). Best I can describe it is that it shot through the sky-appearing out of nowhere-and seemed to abruptly slow down before kicking back and shooting away as quickly as it appeared. I thought initially it to be a meteor-until it made the Z kick and shot off into nothingness.
I've seen a few things very recently that have deeply intrigued me, but this was unbelievable. I also saw something similar (a huge streak of light) that was enormous in comparison-but I can't form the description to make it even remotely believable. It also occurred during a strange night. Over the last 3 weeks or so, there have been a handful of things I planned to report but never felt urged to. Tonight I got on here and immediately reported it (my first one ever!)-that's how incredible this was. Thanks for your time.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
