I was waiting for the school bus around 6:30 AM in Austin texas and it was very cool out and I was sitting looking up at a clear sky and then I saw A bright streak moving from east to west (very fast it only took about two seconds to go from 10:00 to just above tree line to the east and in about two seconds and when I Finally locked in on it , it stopped dead in mid air just above the tree line and hovered for about five seconds then descended at a much slower speed , it looked like you punched a hole in the sky , like a fluorescent bright light no glare , it went from light to black on the edge of it , about the size of a dime at arms length , I knew this was something different now because I've seen aircraft the shuttle fly over shooting stars meteors and comets and this was way faster , I could not tell depth on the object very well but it was a good ways off from what I could tell , I was about 13 at the time AND before seeing Star Wars , im really glad i did this and finally told you, thank you for your time.
