4:40 am While doing my morning run I observed a Blue-white starlike object going from the ground upward to the sky. Like a shooting star going in the wrong direction. Very fast and bright. I saw it facing south on center street and 163rd before the lake.

Object Flight Path
Tuesday June 17th At about 4:15am
I leave my house to do a run.
I go south on center and do a lap around the library near Gardner City Hall and then head back north on center street.
I continue past the auction house and continue towards Gardner Lake. At around 4:40am i am near 163rd street(i checked my phone for the time to know when to head back) I saw what appeared to be a bright blue/white shooting star going in the wrong direction.(meaning: going straight upward and then vanished) The object looked far away like it came up from the South side of town.
It was fast and bright like a shooting star would be except, of course, for the direction I would have paid no more attention to it. The entire observation was just a couple of seconds
The direction of motion struck me as odd and decided the right thing to do is report it.
