Sighting Details

It was a dark clear night. Myself and a friend were on a cleared hillside behind my house and star gazing...looking for satelites. Spotting one coming from the West, we followed it when a movement from the northeast caught my eye. I said, "look, there's another one", and pointed. He acknowledged it and as we watched, it became apparent that they were going to cross paths at a very close distance. Just as it looked like they might collide if at the same altitude, the object from the northeast shot off to the east. We both gasp at the rate of speed and simultaneously said, "did you see that"! Knowing that satellites travel at tens of thousands mph it would have put the rate of speed of the UFO at hundreds of thousands mph...not of this earth! It was literally gone in a second. We looked and the original satellite was still trudging along at about seventeen thousand mph and took several seconds before it eventually disappeared in the same direction.
