Sighting Details

At approximately 7:45 pm I was standing in front of my house, facing South West and saw a white light ascend rapidly & silently at an unknown distance, across the street behind my neighbor's house. What I noticed in particular was how straight and plumb the object's path was. A straight-as-an-arrow, and seeminly 90 degrees vertical ascent. It left no trail at all. I first saw it at 30 degrees above the neighbor's yard, and watched it rise to 60 degrees and vanish. I was also struck by its speed. I cannot say with certainty what its distance from me was...anything from 1 to 5 miles ??? After I saw it, I felt a bit spooked. It was not like anything I've seen before. It seemed inexplicable, and therefore qualifying as a UFO, but then later I had to fight off a desire to forget all about it -- which seems odd, because I've always wanted to see a UFO. I actually forgot about it until late last night, and then had to make a point of remembering it. .....that seems significant to me. I live in an area that occasionally uses white search lights for sports events. Those lights have a beam and move characteristically in sweeping arcs. The light I saw was nothing like that. One last thing that is a little embarrassing to include: I heard a unusual Peep-peep sound across the street after the Light vanished. It was about 40 degrees at the time -- too cold for insects or frogs. I moved to get a better perspective, and scrunched some leaves, at which point the sound stopped. I was outside getting my cat in at the time when I saw the Light. My cat was frightened of me at first, and I have never seen him act like that before. The whole episode is weird, with a cluster of weird aspects to it, which makes me inclined to think I did indeed see something strange...and yet, I still want to dismiss the whole thing as nonsense.
